Los Angeles Times
A pleasure in all ways.

Chicago Reader
Few things are more enthralling than unrequited love, as demonstrated by this drama.
75
New York Post
The pace slackens a little after the first hour, but the photography by Remi Adefarasin and music by Magnus Fiennes keep the emotion stoked.

Philadelphia Inquirer
Fiennes does this sort of inner pain thing exceedingly well, Tyler is beguiling and believable, and there is an edge of wit and grace to the proceedings.
67
Tatyana, the embodiment of a heroine whose still waters run deep, requires more maturity than Tyler as yet possesses.

Portland Oregonian
A handsome, somewhat draggy and abrupt film that's more memorable in snippets than as a whole.
63
Despite Fiennes' splendid moodiness and Tyler's radiant vulnerability, despite lovely settings... this movie is dull.
60
(Tyler's) voice is still mall American, and Onegin's rejection of her is nowhere near as puzzling or as tragic as it's supposed to be.
50
Would have been a stronger movie if it didn't require a strong cup of coffee going in.

New York Daily News
Makes you appreciate opera, or NoDoz.
