    It has to be said, the performances are excellent. Winslet manages emotional honesty within anachronistic confines, and Schoenaerts escapes with dignity.

    A Little Chaos earns one compliment, but it's unfortunately a backhanded one: it’s watchable.

  • David Rooney

    Winslet’s mix of grace, gumption and private sadness is the chief reason to keep watching, but she deserves a more dynamic film.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Dennis Harvey

    Too often, helmer Rickman galumphs through what’s meant to be a witty romp, underlining the script’s most obvious, rigged qualities.

    Variety Full Review
  • Nikola Grozdanovic

    Some intriguing dialogue, and a closet full of fantastic frocks, can’t help an impressive ensemble cast save A Little Chaos from being a lackadaisical picture, far removed from anything remotely exciting as chaos.

  • Angie Errigo

    Lovely, engaging performances keep the film’s heart beating in a sweet if sometimes listless search for Eden.

    Empire Full Review
  • Simon Kinnear

    A classy, actorly affair, whose emphasis on bittersweet character drama over class satire is both its most striking feature and biggest missed opportunity.

  • Bill Zwecker

    If one can put that historic reality aside — and Rickman and fellow screenwriters Jeremy Brock and Alison Deegan make that possible via their straightforward script — A Little Chaos becomes a highly enjoyable journey to a rarified world 300-plus years ago.

  • Roger Moore

    A little more chaos might have truly lit this one up.

  • Sheri Linden

    The story comes to life only fitfully, even with — or perhaps because of — its court intrigue and supporting characters.... But there are striking glimpses of grit, muck and voluptuous beauty (the great Ellen Kuras handled the cinematography) and, above all, there's Winslet.

  • Kate Erbland

    There are weeds here, thorny stuff to slash through, but when A Little Chaos stays on course, there’s plenty of beautiful work to admire.

    The Dissolve Full Review
  • Stephen Holden

    Mr. Schoenaerts’s dour André may make conceptual sense, but he leaves a hole in this handsomely mounted costume drama that would have profited from more intrigue and a steamier erotic atmosphere.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Peter Keough

    The film is engrossing and entertaining if sometimes trite and manipulative and totally bogus.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • David Lewis

    Isn’t a bad film. But it’s a little slow and a little too un-chaotic for its own good.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Stephanie Merry

    Though it purports to be about the delights of disorder, “A Little Chaos” feels like yet another by-the-book period romance, only without the genre’s requisite spark between the main characters.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Randy Cordova

    Visually, the film is sumptuous and the costumes are suitably wow-inspiring, but the humans are a blah bunch.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Kenji Fujishima

    Alan Rickman's film is consistently, and often dispiritingly, mired in the quaint tradition of the classy costume drama.

  • A.A. Dowd

    Watching A Little Chaos, one might assume that its makers were dramatically limited by the details of Le Notre’s life, when it was really just their own imaginations do the limiting.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    The romance between Winslet and Schoenaerts — billed as the film’s centerpiece — is, regrettably, never really allowed to bloom.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Aaron Hillis

    Appropriately hunky but neutered of the brute sexuality he exhibited in Bullhead and Rust and Bone, Schoenaerts and his lack of bodice-busting tension with Winslet mirrors the film's transparent, often anachronistic inauthenticity.

    This overwatered trifle is doomed to wilt and fade quickly from memory.
