Philadelphia Inquirer
A triumph.

USA Today
One of the year's best movies and certainly its most delightful screen surprise.

Chicago Reader
Thoroughly researched, unobtrusively upholstered, this beautifully assured entertainment about Victorian England is a string of delights.

L.A. Weekly
We never seem to be looking at actors, but at people; never at scenes, but at life unrehearsed.

Newsweek
Filled with delicious backstage drama, and superb actors reveling in the opportunity to play their 19th-century counterparts.

Leigh and his solid cast make sure that inside jokes translate to a broad audience, and that their rendering of the back-stage drama is smart, engrossing and often very funny.

Slate
A monument to process -- to the minutiae of making art -- Topsy-Turvy leaves you upside down and breathless.
90
Village Voice
Not only Mike Leigh's strongest film since "Naked" but a true show-making epic.
89
Wildly entertaining, "Shakespeare in Love" minus the Bard and the babe, but with substantive style to burn.
88
New York Daily News
A hive of broad, brilliant performances.
