Critics Consensus: Where'd You Go, Bernadette offers dispiriting proof that a talented director, bestselling source material, and terrific cast can add up to far less than the sum of their parts.

Book-based tale of eccentric genius; mature themes, cursing.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Where'd You Go, Bernadette is director Richard Linklater's adaptation of Maria Semple's best-selling 2012 novel about an eccentric, anxious, and borderline agoraphobic Seattle mother. But Bernadette (Cate Blanchett) is more than she seems (a bored, rich housewife); she's actually an architectural genius who hasn't worked in nearly 20 years. Expect a few instances of strong language (including two uses of "f--k" and the occasional "bitch," "ass," "s--t," etc.), as well as several shots of Bernadette's conspicuous consumerism in the form of Amazon packages and Apple products. A teen vapes, and adults drink. Mature content also includes marital discord and a couple of upsetting arguments. But there's plenty to discuss, from sexism and stereotypes to the importance of mentors and close parent-teen relationships.
