Where'd You Go Bernadette (2019) Review

A QUIRKY, CONFUSING, AND BLAND DRAMEDY

Film adaptations from bestselling books are a dime a dozen of recent Hollywood feature endeavors.

WHERE'D YOU GO, BERNADETTE: A Forgettable Adaptation

Richard Linklater’s most recent exploration into family dynamics, Where’d You Go, Bernadette, drowns in loose ends and oversimplification. Maria Semple’s 2012 novel of the same name was too rich for even some of the biggest names in Hollywood to successfully adapt. 612 more words

Where'd You Go, Bernadette?

Based on a hit novel I have not read, Where’d You Go, Bernadette?, much like it’s central character, is missing something. The story is interesting, a famed architect who has left her career behind decades before to embrace family life, realizing that isn’t enough. 456 more words

Where'd You Go, Bernadette (2019)
