Screened for the first time at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival,… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The beauty of Benson's two films is that while they do work best as companion pieces, the material and performances are so strong that they also work as standalone movies, both driven by the heartbeat of their separate subjects."
‑ Matthew Pejkovic, Matt's Movie Reviews
"It may not say anything new, but it is says it with style and with heart."
‑ Jo-Anne Titmarsh, HeyUGuys
"As one movie, it may not be a groundbreaking look at relationships, but what remains is an unusually delicate American drama."
‑ William Goss, Empire Magazine
"It's ultimately clear, however, that The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby could (and probably should) have been edited down to a single, much tighter movie..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"It is very much a first film, albeit one of rare ambition, and there's every reason to think that Benson will nail it next time around."
‑ Oliver Lyttelton, The Playlist
"What makes The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby truly stand apart from all the other films of its the emotional depth that is allowed to be dug by the film's premise and length, executed almost perfectly"
‑ Nikola Grozdanovic, The Playlist
