Filled with a cast of eccentric characters, each pursuing dreams and missions of their own making, Lord Byron paints a kaleidoscopic portrait of the strange and lonely world of its title character, a middle-aged, late-20th century romantic who's confused and torn about his own ambitions and desires. --(c) Official Site

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Against all reason, Byron's televangelist-led quest for clarity compels us to follow, the film's melting, naturalistic images softening the occasional scream of dialogue repeated beyond all necessity."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"There is something interesting about the tension between fact and fiction, but there's also something frustrating too."
‑ Matt Singer, IFC.com
"Vacillating between free-associative shtick and complete inertia, Lord Byron is lost in thought and allergic to reason."
‑ Michael Atkinson, Village Voice
"Lord Byron manages to turn nonsensical gibberish into a captivating soundtrack for the equally fragmented stories of the strangers living in the same home."
‑ Diego Costa, Slant Magazine
"This microbudgeted character study of a good-natured, religiously curious and plus-sized South Louisiana gentleman with 'a thing for women' is one of the more distinctive features to emerge from the so-called 'mumblecore' movement."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"Lord Byron is best seen as an experiment in telling the simplest of stories with the simplest of means."
‑ David D'Arcy, Screen International
