"For a seemingly simply told tale with minimal dialogue, Haigh uses a number of subtle devices to clue us in to what is really happening without resorting to cheap gimmicks."
Los Angeles Times
12/31/2015
"45 YEARS is a quietly explosive movie, a potent drama with a nuanced feel for subtlety and emotional complications."
A.V. Club
12/21/2015
"[T]his is a film of no wasted scenes or unnecessary subplots, stripped down to something tough and focused and vivid." -- Grade: A
New York Times
12/22/2015
"[A] sensitive and devastating portrait of a long, happy marriage in sudden crisis..."
Entertainment Weekly
12/17/2015
"Courtenay is a gruff and gratifyingly knotty presence, but in the end it?s Rampling?s movie. In a quiet, beautifully calibrated performance completely stripped of actressy tricks, she?s a revelation." -- Grade: A-
Variety

"Modestly paced, carefully composed and emotionally curbed though it may be, 45 YEARS is permitted a major element of dramatic underpinning."
Hollywood Reporter
02/06/2015
"[With] finely calibrated performances and deep reserves of inner torment."
Film Comment

"Haigh established himself in WEEKEND as a master of understatement; 45 YEARS confirms that not showing us is absolutely his forte."
Rolling Stone
01/06/2016
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "45 YEARS casts a hell of a spell. And Courtenay and Rampling reward the film with performances of uncommon subtlety and feeling."
Chicago Sun-Times
01/21/2016
"[I]t?s Haigh?s tremendous lead actors that make the movie. They?re a convincing couple: Courtenay is absent-minded and untidy; Rampling is cool and controlled."
Boston Globe
01/22/2016
"It usually takes a few decades to sort these things out, but it?s just possible that what Charlotte Rampling does in 45 YEARS may someday be considered one of the greatest performances by an actress in the history of the movies."
Washington Post
01/21/2016
"This is a tour de force example of what actors mean when they say 'interior work,' as Rampling embodies a woman reacting and reflecting, and thinking hard about the nature of true love."
