“The mischievous paradox of Viola is that it is at once devilishly complicated and perfectly simple. Watching Viola is like walking into the middle of a party whose guests are mostly friends of friends, very attractive and a little mysterious. You try to glean who is connected to whom. Are those two women friends or rivals? And then you drift into another conversation. You end up zigzagging through town on obscure errands. And then unexpectedly, it all makes sense. A narrative shape and an emotional payoff arrive in the very last scenes. You have been privy to a series of seductive moments, drawn into the eternal rhythm of youth, connected with something old and durable, one name for which is art.” A.O. Scott, The New York Times.
