"A refreshingly anachronistic historical drama with breath-taking cinematography and sound design as well as Lanthimos' standard layer of deadpan humor."

"A decent and well-acted, if unoriginal, thriller. The dialog is written a bit too clever for the more grounded tone the film was otherwise going for. Because of that, the dialog (and thus, most of the human drama) often fell flat. This would be fine if not for the film's choice to focus on the human drama instead of, for instance, the mystery of the creatures. "

"Starts off quirky, stylish and fun. The cast is largely fantastic and the premise is certainly unique for a Christmas movie. Unfortunately, the film does run out of creative steam fairly quickly and becomes far too sappy for its own good in the final act. It's a shame because this could have easily ended up a holiday favorite, but it's still a fairly amusing watch."

"A slow yet engaging film with a strong dramatic heart that's nevertheless overshadowed by a masterful technical craftsmanship. "

"Not just a feel-good Christmas movie but also an amazing film that succeeds spectacularly in pulling the heart strings, thanks largely to the sincerity of the film in general and James Stewart's performance in particular. I do think that the angel bits are a bit too whimsical for what is otherwise a film strictly grounded in reality (well, 1940s Hollywood reality at least), but that is all pushed aside quite easily with that terrific ending."
