Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Hoffman at his best."
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"Agatha is a visually rich movie filmed exquisitely by Vittorio Storro."

"A curio item, an art film that wants to be commercial, this mild mystery (about Agatha Christie's disappearance) evoked expectations due to the high-caliber cast of tall Vanessa Redgrave and short Dustin Hoffman."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com

‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Fascinating drama with Hoffman and Redgrave."
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
