Critic Reviews for A Long Way From Home

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (6)

The dialogue and situations simply never feel authentic. The younger characters are poorly developed and hollow.

Unfortunately, director Virginia Gilbert doesn't trust us to handle the chill winds and opts for something that has no temperature at all.

Rutherford does lovely things with the Provençal light, but Fox is too much of a cipher to care about.

December 5, 2013 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

A mood piece on socially inappropriate lust with moments of real drama.

December 5, 2013 | Rating: 4/5

What seems at first an almost mundane affair becomes a devastating, unsentimental portrait of quiet desperation

December 2, 2013 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Adroit performances abound in this ex-pat tale. Archipelago DP Ed Rutherford helps add to the Joanna Hogg-y feel, but this lacks the disquieting insights of Hogg's work.
