Critic Reviews of "Girl with a Pearl Earring"Orlando SentinelJanuary 30, 2004
Working from an intelligent, understated screenplay by Olivia Hetreed, director Peter Webber (an acclaimed documentarian) proceeds with a stunning assurance.Miami HeraldJanuary 30, 2004
Lavish attention to historical detail, the thorough immersion in this unusual world and Johansson's impressive performance make Girl With a Pearl Earring memorable but not a masterpiece.Arizona RepublicJanuary 29, 2004
A feast for the eyes.Philadelphia InquirerJanuary 22, 2004
A virtual ricochet-fest of eyeball action. Those looks, those glares, those gapes, those gawks!New York ObserverJanuary 21, 2004
A rare and elegant film bathed in the kind of soft, delicate light that can build unexpectedly to feelings of both anxiety and bliss.Toronto StarJanuary 16, 2004
The picture is simply ravishing, but at times it falls prey to its own contemplations.Common Sense MediaDecember 24, 2010
Older teens and adults will enjoy. Book is better.ColeSmithey.comMay 09, 2009
The film is an intriguing speculative account of the creation of one of Vermeer's most famous and sensual paintings. Every shot in the film looks like it was taken right out of a painting from Delft, Holland circa 1665...Paste MagazineJune 03, 2008
The movie benefits greatly from Johansson's gift for understated delivery, but she's less assured in this demure, largely non-verbal role than she was as a modern young woman in Ghost World and Lost in Translation.Princeton Town TopicsApril 25, 2007
An entertaining but inauthentic adaptation, a production which reads more like a Hollywood teensploit than a historical epic from Holland.Arkansas Democrat-GazetteJanuary 10, 2005
... a movie about a kind of understanding that rarely passes between human beings; a solemn, sacred meeting of minds.Looking CloserDecember 06, 2004
Girl with the Pearl Earring is about the liberating and inspiring experience of being seen.
