Critic Reviews of "Confirmation"Chicago Sun-TimesApril 21, 2016
Save for a few scenes that feel like overkill just to give us a little bit more intrigue and suspense, Confirmation feels true to the spirit of the events, which were bizarre, unsettling - and undeniably entertaining.TheWrapApril 21, 2016
The case for Anita Hill -- and all the unknown Anita Hills -- is argued persuasively in "Confirmation," a dutiful, solidly entertaining drama that effectively stirs the viewer's righteous indignation.The AtlanticApril 19, 2016
In revisiting the hearing 25 years after it happened, Confirmation offers a chance to consider its impact, and what it lacks in stylistic verve, it makes up for with methodical storytelling.Washington PostApril 18, 2016
Yet despite its tantalizing subject matter, Confirmation is surprisingly flat and uninspired, in every way that it shouldn't be in 2016.The New RepublicApril 18, 2016
A well-made movie about a sensational moment in history that aims for the detached authority of a news report.Los Angeles TimesApril 18, 2016
Filled with affecting and nuanced performances, Confirmation is an upsetting film to watch, hitting far too close to the bone to feel like a period piece about a regrettable moment from which we have learned.Common Sense MediaJuly 19, 2016
Historic Clarence Thomas/Anita Hill retelling is intense.FlavorwireMay 05, 2016
HBO's original film about the 1991 Clarence Thomas hearings is a quietly powerful portrait of institutional dysfunction in the face of an uncomfortable truth.Film ExperienceApril 26, 2016
The poster suggests "it only takes one voice to change history", but beyond title card lip service at film's end, they never explore this claim.Paste MagazineApril 21, 2016
The proceedings riveted America and brought sexual harassment and workplace equality into the forefront of our conversation. Of course we know how this case ends too... but that doesn't make reliving it any less fascinating, or important.The Young FolksApril 21, 2016
...for all the problems Confirmation faces, its forceful leads are what make this a worthwhile one-time viewing.Baltimore SunApril 20, 2016
Beyond the cultural pop, it is also an engaging film with strong writing, sure-handed direction, superb editing and outstanding performances from Washington and Pierce.
