What we think

Polite Society is an amusing, affecting, and confident feature debut for Manzoor and a strong calling card for its cast – but it’s missing the necessary ingredients to make it iconic.

What others think

Fun action comedy mashes Jane Austen and the Chuckle Brothers.
Peter Bradshaw The Guardian
An in-your-face comedy about crane-kicking the face of traditional mores.
Fatima Sheriff Little White Lies
By turns a spy thriller, kung fu movie and sci-fi fantasy, Nida Manzoor’s Polite Society playfully expands the parameters of the kitchen-sink family melodrama.
