Washington Post by

Not just a fitting document of a life brilliantly lived but a vibrant, almost palpitating piece of cinema.


Salon by Charles Taylor

Suffers from PBS syndrome, but Dame Judi Dench cures with a moving portrayal of life with Alzheimer's.


L.A. Weekly by Ella Taylor

The film is not a biopic or a portrait of a famous marriage so much as it is an imaginative essay on what made a union between two radically different people work as well as it did.


TV Guide Magazine by Ken Fox

It's a great achievement, quiet enough to allow room for her excellent supporting cast -- but strong enough to be felt over James Horner's omnipresent, typically overbearing score.


New York Post by Lou Lumenick

Though Iris is extremely well-acted and beautifully photographed, some audience members may find themselves agreeing with Bayley's frustrated complaint: "I've never known who you are."
