All Critics (90) | Top Critics (24)

A fascinating - though at times uneven - blend of film styles.

Top Critic

This flawed but powerful immigrant love story is worthy of the big screen.

August 19, 2021 | Full Review…

The overall feeling here is ethereal, dreamy, moody, memory-like -- a more user-friendly Terence Malick vibe. It is a gorgeous film, and one that deserves to be seen on a giant screen.

August 2, 2021 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Admirable efforts aside, I Carry You With Me is still an enchanting mix of drama and romance, but also a timely, poetic love letter to Iván's home country, Mexico

July 16, 2021 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

The film is a big hug, but the "you" of the title is a homeland, and it is many miles away.

If you're a sucker for love stories about couples overcoming obstacles, Heidi Ewing's low-key indie is a find.
