Critic Reviews of "The Zookeeper's Wife"New York ObserverApril 05, 2017
It doesn't burn through the conscience and haunt you forever like Schindler's List, but in spite of its laid-back reluctance to shock and horrify, it's never trivial or boring.The New RepublicApril 04, 2017
Niki Caro breaks out of the genre and emerges with a truly moving and original film. She uses the familiar structure of survival and rescue, but her focus is on the mechanics of cruelty itself in an unlikely setting.Christian Science MonitorMarch 31, 2017
How this was managed is truly inspiring, but the way it plays out in Angela Workman's script (adapted from Diane Ackerman's bestseller) is strictly by the numbers.ReelViewsMarch 31, 2017
If it's remembered at all, it will be seen as a missed opportunity to tell a powerful story.Time OutMarch 31, 2017
Jessica Chastain is relaxed with some actual lion cubs, and there's a bunny that should win an Oscar. But when the film pivots to the scared human beings down below, you get a hint of the weirder, tougher drama it might have been.San Diego ReaderMarch 31, 2017
Again and again, the fuse is lit and then fizzles. Eventually, bewildered disinterest sets in.Reel Film ReviewsJune 18, 2017
...a well-intentioned yet entirely misbegotten endeavor that squanders a good cast and searing true-life setup.Saporta Report (Atlanta)June 15, 2017
"The Zookeeper's Wife" has a very particular, quite amazing story to tell and yet, somehow it squanders the opportunity.Affinity MagazineJune 10, 2017
The film could have been an excellent introduction to a relatively unknown historical figure, but it doesn't eloquently capture the essence of their real life struggle.National Catholic ReporterMay 24, 2017
It is a story of selflessness and bravery I had not heard before and it surely inspires.Cairo360May 24, 2017
Chastain's performance is truly riveting and the Oscar-nominated actress shines every time she appears on screen.Film InquiryMay 18, 2017
The Zookeeper's Wife is a story worth telling, and while it's not faultless, I believe it's a story Workman, Caro and Chastain have told well.
