Leap Year

The critical consensus

A harrowing study of loneliness that showcases an intensely brave and believable performance from newcomer del Carmen.

Aussie migrant Rowe has an acute eye for the emotional badlands travelled by Lopez's struggling journo. A tough but humane and affecting watch.

Proves, if you were beginning to doubt, that people still make good grown-up films.

****(*)Nigel Andrews, Financial Times, 24/11/2010

The sex scenes can be tough to watch, the more so as the reason for her rage and self-hate dawns on us; del Carmen's performance is powerful and painful.

***(*)(*)Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian, 25/11/2010

It's an intense, powerful and at times deeply painful movie.

Philip French, The Observer, 28/11/2010

Above all credit must go to del Carmen, who produces such a brave and committed performance, which is shorn of all vanity.

****(*)Tom Dawson, The List, 23/12/2010

An original and moving picture with a heartbreaking central performance from Monica del Carmen in the lead.

***(*)(*)Alison Rowat, The Herald, 06/01/2011

Del Carman's brave and intense performance aside, the film doesn't do enough to dispel the notion that this is merely one more example of a director making a name for themselves with yet another tedious slice of pseudo-arthouse exploitation.
