    Heder's direction shines, shaping the film around the cast as each woman plays out their own specific nuances of loss and insecurity, and, occasionally, optimism. Tallulah is an impressive feature debut, and a welcome showcase for the talents of Page, Janney, and Blanchard.

    The story in Tallulah sometimes strains credulity, but it’s beautifully told and acted.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Nigel M Smith

    Yes, the story has the makings of a Lifetime movie; what grounds it are the terrific performances and Heder’s rich direction and screenplay.

  • Geoff Berkshire

    Page is simply superb in a complex role that perfectly plays to her gift for balancing deadpan comedy with surprisingly deep emotional reserves.

  • Nick Allen

    Tallulah is an impressive debut from Heder, who also works as a writer on Netlfix’s “Orange Is the New Black” (Uzo Aduba, who plays Crazy Eyes on the series, has a part as a child services agent with a lot of perspective). Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    For most of its running time, the movie works as a sharp, generous human comedy about fear of family (among other things), with Page once again reminding us that she’s one of the most deft and underutilized actors of her generation. You’re already sold on Janney, I hope.

  • Joe Dziemianowicz

    Tallulah is a sensitive and stirring look at motherhood.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Tim Grierson

    Helped enormously by deeply-felt performances from Ellen Page and Allison Janney, this film mostly overcomes its unevenness by finding rich pockets of emotion and insight.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Dave White

    What saves Tallulah from American indie sameness and its allegiance to neat resolution are its three lead actors and Heder’s apparent skill in bringing out their best work.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Leslie Felperin

    There’s so much to root for here it’s painful to concede there’s some hideously on-the-nose, spell-out-the-motivation-in-capital-letters writing that lowers the tone.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Michael Nordine

    The film's premise rests on one contrivance too many as it is...and Heder keeps raising the stakes instead of settling into the groove established so well by her two leads.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • David Wiegand

    Cliche piles on top of cliche to make a nearly two-hour film feel twice as long, simply because we see so many things coming that we feel as though we’re watching each section twice.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Dan Mecca

    There’s honesty here and a swath of well-written, well-developed female characters, but not enough to justify laughing with a kidnapper.

  • Elise Nakhnikian

    Relevant facts about each character are dutifully punched out, in earnest speeches or actions that are often wildly overdrawn.
