Undercooked despite its bevy of interesting ideas.

Delpy doesn't milk the story for sci-fi creepiness or dystopian thrills; rather, she aims for emotional realism - something that, thanks to her intense lead performance and sleek yet subdued direction, she mostly achieves.

It may not stick the landing, but by the time the screen goes black one final time, Delpy has left enough to think about for another three acts.

[Delpy's] risk-taking is admirable, and given the excellent craft, never less than engaging to watch, but it does not always pay off.

The whole thing is a waste of everyone's time.

Well acted and well filmed, yes, but the storytelling, in which Delpy stitches together mismatched parts like a Dr. Frankenstein, is its weak suit.

Delpy writes these characters with such depth, and stages their interactions with such sensitivity, that you understand them without necessarily approving of them.

My Zoe dares to lead with its feelings, and that fearlessness provides a striking spectacle itself.

A clumsy combo of domestic tragedy and sci-fi that comes to a maddening conclusion.
