Check out a selection of reviews below and pop in to make up your own mind!
“A must-see knockabout comedy that takes a serious look at the rights of the intellectually disabled” 4/5 – Irish Times
“[a] Brave film about intellectual disability”
4/5 – RTE
“In all, ‘Sanctuary’ is a lovely, ambitious project that is full of charm and a good story that actually discusses issues, albeit slightly superficially”
4/5 – Movies.ie
“Sanctuary is an achievement that will be appreciated by audiences across Ireland, and I expect, internationally”
“It’s Catherine v Catherine as two French acting powerhouses come face to face in the sensitive and emotionally intelligent family drama”
4/5 – Timeout London
“Catherine Deneuve Gives Her Best Role in Years in Minor-Key Crowdpleaser”
“It’s definitely treacly in places and not exactly reinventing the wheel, but the two fine performances at its heart are more than worth it”
A FANTASTIC WOMAN
