Several film reviews mention the Brontës today. The Harvard Crimson finds Mary Shelley 'disappointing and reductive' but reminds readers of the fact that,
It is rare that writers produce their best known works at a young age, but part of Mary Shelley’s fame lies in the fact that she created one of the most famous characters of all time at the tender age of 18. Unlike many renown British female writers who were childless, like Jane Austen and the Brontë sisters, Shelley was a mother. “Frankenstein” was written between her second and third pregnancies, after the death of her first two babies. (Aline G. Damas)
Radio Colonna (Italy) reviews A Quiet Passion.
Insieme a Cynthia Nixon, il cast può contare su una serie di ottimi comprimari, in primis Jennifer Ehle che qui interpreta la sorella piccola Vinnie, un duo che ricorda le Brontë o Jane e Cassandra Austen. [...]
