- " “On Chesil Beach” is PBS-tasteful in its approach, but its power rests in a restraint that makes what it builds to all the more moving." – Cary Darling , Houston Chronicle
- “What had been impossibly sweet becomes simply impossible, and old-fashioned mores prove unsuited to the task of navigating the emotional morass.”- Matthew Lickona , San Diego Reader
- “There's splendid acting across the board and assured direction by Cooke, a stage veteran making his feature debut…” – Peter Howell , Toronto Star
