“Romantic but pitiless, fearlessly emotional as well as edgy, Rust and Bone is a powerhouse.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

“Turns out to be one of the most transportingly romantic movies of the year, one that finds the most stirring emotion in struggle rather than in ginned-up melodrama or easy resolution.” – Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

“A strong, emotionally replete experience, and also a tour de force of directorial button pushing.” – A.O. Scott, The New York Times
