"What it boasts in abundance — in this riveting study of a deeply broken man, suffocated by nine years of self-immolation — is a rare and deep compassion, elevated by Fraser’s starring turn."
Jack King, The Playlist
"Once everything finally collides in The Whale, something shattering and beautiful and honest emerges."
Bilge Ebiri, Vulture
