Lucy in the Sky

Critics Consensus

Natalie Portman gives it her all, but it isn't enough to overcome Lucy in the Sky's confused approach to its jumbled story.

Critic Reviews for Lucy in the Sky

All Critics (111) | Top Critics (27) | Fresh (25) | Rotten (86)

  • [M]uch of "Lucy in the Sky," it doesn't connect down here on Earth and is caught somewhere in the cosmos.

    Oct 11, 2019 | Rating: C | Full Review…
  • It's contemplative and meditative, sure, but it doesn't wind up saying anything.

    Oct 11, 2019 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • It's a deep-thinking character study that's provocatively if imperfectly presented - at least until the story devolves right along with its subject's state of mind.

    Oct 9, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

    Top Critic
  • "Lucy" should soar, but instead, it flatlines.

    Oct 9, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Unintentionally funny and then just plain sad, Lucy in the Sky is one of the most disappointing films of 2019.

    Oct 4, 2019 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • In its ambitions, "Lucy in the Sky" seems at first glance to be a female answer to "Ad Astra," but it steadily devolves into something worthy of the Lifetime channel.
