Review |
Netflix movie review: Pieces of a Woman – Vanessa Kirby excels in laboured relationship drama

  • The film, adapted from a stage play, opens with a bravura sequence showing a woman’s home birth, but can’t sustain its naturalism and technical audacity
  • What sustains it is outstanding work by Kirby, playing a mother whose newborn dies, Shia LaBoeuf as her husband, and Ellen Burstyn as her overbearing mother
