What the Critics say

Cape Argus / The Star
Zane Henry quote iconA boring narrative.
5
Die Burger
Mariana Malan quote iconGryp kyker nooit werklik aan nie.
10
Cape Times
Carina Chocano quote iconPop psych just plods along.
5
The Citizen
Annette Bayne quote icon Although Evening is beautifully filmed, the emotional impact is limited and too often there is dangerous slip-sliding into mawkish sentimentality.
10
BBC
Laura Bushell quote iconA raft of award-winners head up the cast and crew of Evening, but this slick-loooking melodrama heaves under the weight of all those gongs.
5
Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconThere are few things more depressing than a weeper that doesn't make you weep
8
ReelViews
James Berardinelli quote iconThe strength of the screenplay and acting provide a satisfying, although not overwhelming, two hours of romance, drama, and tragedy.
15
Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconSusan Minot’s resplendent novel stumbles on its way to the screen.
13
ScreenIt
quote iconWhile not awful, Evening is slow and boring enough that it might just have viewers contemplating their own regrets, including spending the time and/or money to sit down in front of this.
