"With a heartbreaking story brought powerfully to life by Brendan Fraser's starring performance, The Whale's as hard to watch as it is to look away from."
Rotten Tomatoes


"Fraser delivers the best work of his career."
Chicago Sun-Times


"A searing, moving experience."
Seattle Times


"“The Whale” doesn’t make a lunge for your emotions. It earns them."
San Francisco Chronicle


"Brendan Fraser is on the march to Oscar. That's how astonishing he is as a morbidly obese recluse in this deeply moving character study. Accusations that wearing a fatsuit diminishes his tour de force performances are nonsense. This is essential viewing."
Peter Travers, ABC News


"This is a film that stays with you and changes you. It is heavy, indeed."
Associated Press
