Metacritic Score

  • 70

    The New York Times Dana Stevens

    He plies his viewers with plenty of bread -- chewy and, to some tastes, dry and starchy scenes -- but he also scatters petals of whimsy and delight to nourish the senses.

  • 70

    Los Angeles Times Kevin Thomas

    Bread and Roses" hits home when one of Maya's co-workers observes, "When we put on uniforms, we become invisible." It's a truth as uncomfortable as it is undeniable.

  • 30

    Variety Todd McCarthy

    Its politics and dramatic line are familiar and far from convincing.
