What are critics saying?


TheWrap by Dan Callahan

The Pass is finally nothing more than a modest stage adaptation and a vehicle for Tovey, but on that level it is focused and skillful.


Empire by Ian Freer

Russell Tovey gives a layered, career-best performance in an intense interior drama that never quite shakes its theatrical origins.


The Guardian by Peter Bradshaw

The film is a bit stagey sometimes, but ambitious and insightful. Tovey is excellent as he shows someone progressing from innocence to fear and then to loneliness.
