Critic Reviews of "The Intervention"New York TimesAugust 30, 2016
Despite her script's omissions - we learn little about where these affluent people come from, their occupations or how they know one another - Ms. DuVall juggles the emotional dynamics with fluid editing and light comic touches.Entertainment WeeklyAugust 26, 2016
The script wobbles between heavy-handed and touching, but the result is a pleasantly nostalgic throwback that's saved from its copy-cat tendencies by charismatic actors.RogerEbert.comAugust 26, 2016
If DuVall's purpose was to provide a snapshot of her generation, she should have sharpened her focus.Los Angeles TimesAugust 25, 2016
As an unfussy, dryly amusing and sincere look at men and women pondering emotional pivots in their lives, it's plenty likable.New York PostAugust 25, 2016
Wanders from scene to scene until arriving at some pretty implausible conflict resolution.TheWrapAugust 25, 2016
It's more engrossing to just hang out with the characters in all their damaged glory, before the plot marches through the room with its clunkiest boots on.Film InquiryJanuary 09, 2017
You may have to be at just the right stage in your life to appreciate it - but for those of us who are there, The Intervention is a great film.Seanax.comDecember 01, 2016
It's the directorial debut of Clea Duvall and it's very much an actors' showcase: eight characters with heavy baggage doing their best to ignore the weight.Cinemalogue.comSeptember 02, 2016
These are characters we've generally seen before and don't care to revisit.MetroAugust 30, 2016
DuVall doesn't just fall back on ad-libbing quip-flingers; her cinemascope frames are precise and assured, and she knows how to cut on a joke without making it seem over-determined.Under the RadarAugust 29, 2016
A competently-shot, well-acted -- especially from Lynskey -- slice of thirty-something ennui.NYC Movie GuruAugust 26, 2016
Engrossing, wise, funny and well-acted. How refreshing it is to watch an American film that's for adults, that can't be turned into a video game. and where no one gets eaten by zombies for a change!
