Critic Reviews for Refuge
The central characters' coupledom might bring them a safe haven, but audiences will be left out in the cold.
Just as unsatisfying and unrealistic as a happily-ever-after story about a damsel and a prince she has barely met.
Jessica Goldberg's sluggish directorial debut feels like a leftover from the 1990s, when dank indie dramas littered film-festival lineups.
The problem with the film isn't the contrivance of its premise, it's that writer-director Jessica Goldberg doesn't know it's contrived.
Audience Reviews for Refuge
Very slight, but lovely film. I really liked it a lot. The story is a young woman, played by Krysten Ritter (I really am starting to like her a lot as an actress), has returned from college to her small town home to care for her younger brother and sister after the death of her parents. She meets a guy who is passing through, and the damaged pair form a relationship. It's not a fairytale, and nothing amazing happens, but it is a sweet movie. Very brief at 80 minutes. I was sorry to see it end. I really felt for all these characters and believed them.
