The Nest

Critics Consensus

An effective pairing of period setting and timeless themes, The Nest wrings additional tension out of its unsettling story with an outstanding pair of lead performances.

  • Law and Coon aren't the only reason to see Durkin's marital nightmare of a movie, but they are the main reason to see it

    September 19, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…
  • There's beauty in the small moments of this downbeat and dark family drama.

    September 18, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • As devastating as The Nest often is, the sheer beauty of individual moments is still elating.

    September 18, 2020 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • It looks like a horror movie, swims like a horror movie, and quacks like a horror movie, but it isn't a horror movie. So then what the hell is it?

  • Even if you're not entirely sold by the idea of an Antonioni-esque alienation drama shot as if it were I Am The Pretty Thing That Lives In The House (and why the hell wouldn't you be?!), The Nest is well worth seeing just for its two central performances.

    Top Critic
  • As conceived by Canadian writer-director Sean Durkin, The Nest is excellently engineered domestic drama, with characters walking on just the right number of eggshells around each other until they crack wide open.
