Rated R · 2h 8m
An acutely tragicomic depiction of the everyday lives of three working-class families in contemporary London. The mundane experiences of taxi drivers, nurses, cashiers, and those struggling to find a job are explored with a tender generosity, as they move through each day dealing with work, relationship problems, health issues, and familial strife.
Washington Post by
Will probably appeal only to the most committed of Leigh fans.
San Francisco Chronicle by
Leigh doesn't sentimentalize these tragic, dead-end lives but allows his characters to be ugly and stupid, to make horrendous mistakes. Sometimes they're laughable, and yet there's never the sense that Leigh is mocking them.
Wall Street Journal by
This feelbad movie makes you glad when it's over.
The A.V. Club by
It's a hard-won comfort, found here over a bleak stretch of days, but All Or Nothing makes it look like the best life has to offer.
New York Post by
Leigh's uncanny ability to mine emotional truth packs the usual punch. And the trademark flashes of humor sprinkled throughout ease the bleakness of the landscape.
Baltimore Sun by
An exhilarating movie about sadness and renewal.
New York Magazine (Vulture) by
The empathy never lifts off -- never becomes poetry. It doesn't help that Leigh indulges his unfortunate habit of larding the soundtrack with draggy, mournful music, heavy on the cello.
Rolling Stone by
Leigh isn't breaking new ground, but he knows how a daily grind can kill love. Strong stuff.
The wealth of behavioral detail and observational humor make for some rewarding drama that will resonate with many viewers.
Boston Globe by
Grueling, heavy-handed, and surprisingly insight-free. For once, a gaggle of Leigh characters hasn't jelled beyond the level of its cast's conceits.
Family secrets are laid bare.
A vivid portrait of working-class existence where even the most modest of dreams carry enormous weight.
Two young women rekindle their friendship after parting ways at their college graduation, six years earlier.
Death has a ginger beard.
