Movie Reviews

  • Simon Stone's film, about a famous archaeological discovery, has an excellent cast, led by Carey Mulligan, Ralph Fiennes and Lily James, all in top form
    3.5 of 5 by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic ]
  • Simon Stone uses the Sutton Hoo treasure to tackle a very intimate part of being human: how we grasp and cope with the idea of time; A touching film that perhaps spends a bit too much time digging in the wrong places
    Review rate : B- by Matt Melis [Consequence of Sound ]
  • Ralph Fiennes's Sutton Hoo drama, "The Dig", is a beautiful, heartfelt period tale; The line it draws between the earthy and the ethereal stays with you: it's a well-timed double dose of consolation and escape
    4 of 5 by Robby Colin [Daily Telegraph (UK) ]
  • not an entirely smooth disinterment but satisfying all the same; Simon Stone's work here is conventional and sedate but well-acted and handsome enough to make it a satisfying watch
    by David Rooney [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • it's very easy to get swept away by it all; In "The Dig", Simon Stone and his talented filmmaking team have made a truly beautiful piece, contemplative and melancholy, with a lovely score by Stefan Gregory and enveloping scenery shot by Mike Eley
    3.5 of 4 by Lindsey Bahr [Associated Press ]
  • it's an intimate film that moves at the deliberate, careful pace of an excavation and, in so doing, uncovers a few gems along the way
    2.5 of 4 by Johnny Oleksinski [New York Post ]
  • an extraordinary film, one that dares to invoke the tenets of melodrama, romance and art house symbolism for a tear-jerking epic that is frequently intoxicating; This is serious, intellectually committed and emotionally piercing cinema. Unmissable
    5 of 5 by Kevin Maher [The Times (UK) ]
  • "The Dig" is charming, moving, old-fashioned heritage cinema; Simon Stone's film delivers strong performances, and top-level craft, but with an undercurrent of real emotion which sensitively conveys the fragility of lives and time
    by Fionnuala Halligan [Screen Daily International ]
  • "The Dig" is actually not a very earthy film, though there is intelligence and sensitivity and a good deal of English restraint and English charm, thoroughly embodied by the fine leading performers Carey Mulligan and Ralph Fiennes
    3 of 5 by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian ]
