93% – Rotten Tomatoes

“A sincere affection for and understanding of the source material shines through in its wit and good nature.”

“Crafting a don’t-miss movie out of Charles Dickens’ 1850 doorstop of a novel, Amando Inannicci and a sublime cast, led by a never-better Dev Patel, add a blast of mad, modern irreverence that is totally irresistible.”
