Reviews of Last Tango in Halifax:
It’s a rapturous mix of absurdly fairy-tale-romance and frantic modern complications, set in the picturesque drear of Yorkshire and brought to life by masterfully shaded performances. — Los Angeles Times, Mary McNamara
A high-hearted script awash in flinty wit and two extraordinary performances. — Wall Street Journal, Dorothy Rabinowitz
