Reviews

  • "Mackey convinces us that there are so many more colours to EMILY than the ones she is allowed to display. Her thoughtful, understated performance matches a film that teases out the flesh-and-blood emotions from the stuff of gothic romance."
    - Screen Daily
  • "With EMILY, Frances O’Connor has crafted a first film that feels like the work of an accomplished master."
    - The Playlist
  • "With her angular face and penetrating gaze, Mackey commands the screen, confidently shepherding us through Emily’s mercurial moods. Her eyes — darting nervously at one moment, squinting suspiciously at another — tells us what dialogue can’t."
    - The Hollywood Reporter
