"Annie (Byrne) has long tolerated her partner Duncan’s (O’Dowd) obsession with the obscure rocker Tucker Crowe (Hawke), but she’s reaching the end of her tether. Crowe had a ’90s following, but he disappeared decades ago after a mid-show breakdown, never to be heard from again by his fans. Duncan has never let the light die out, running a fan forum for similar obsessives around the world. When a previously unknown demo version of a Crowe album emerges after 25 years, the events that follow change Annie and Duncan’s lives in the most unexpected ways." (Sydney Film Festival)Hide

The Press Reviews

  • Juliet, Naked never truly achieves comic lift-off. Instead, it bumps around from one mild laugh, awkward encounter and bewildering decision to another without ever building up an exhilarating head of steam. Full Review

  • But while each of the three leads is engaging, there's an unreality about Juliet, Naked that director Jesse Peretz never satisfyingly reconciles. Full Review

  • It takes a lot of effort to take a film which stars Rose Byrne and still make it mediocre, but, by God, director Jesse Peretz is up to the challenge. Full Review

  • "Juliet, Naked" is a gently winning romantic comedy, all keyed to a delightful note of indie-rock obsession. Full Review

  • [Rose] Byrne is the heart of Juliet, Naked, and she's so winning I was willing to forgive even the odd spasm of Meg Ryan-ish mugging. Full Review

  • Nick Hornby's 2009 novel about rock fandom run amuck is annoyingly hit-and-miss on screen, but partly saved by the vibrant acting of Chris O'Dowd, Ethan Hawke and the glorious Rose Byrne. Full Review

  • The best word for the movie might be agreeable. It's easy to glide along on its good-natured path. Full Review

  • A charming film of an engaging, adult nature about two very different people trying to press reset in their lives, it is comic, heartfelt and smart as they come - a rare combination these days. Full Review
