Charles Taylor
Whatever the reason, Oscar and Lucinda winds up feeling like a collection of bits in search of vision and an emotional surge. Full Review
Dave Kehr
New York Daily News
Armstrong is usually a strong and original director of actors (her 1979 "My Brilliant Career" launched the inimitable Judy Davis). But here, her taste seems to have deserted her. [31Dec1997 Pg.30] Full Review
Elvis Mitchell
The New York Times
As directed exquisitely by Gillian Armstrong in a headstrong spirit that recalls her debut feature, "My Brilliant Career," this elliptical tale makes up in visual beauty whatever it lacks in universal meaning. Full Review
Emanuel Levy
Armstrong and Jones smoothly navigate the magical tale through numerous shocking twists and turns until they bring it to a most logical, emotionally satisfying conclusion. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Despite some obvious overplotting, Oscar and Lucinda is a mostly effective and often affecting motion picture that touches our hearts while daring our minds to balk at its implausible coincidences. Full Review
