The Space Between Us resonates with a probing beauty on both emotional and physical levels.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5
August 24, 2018
A solid family film that asks some big questions.
August 21, 2018
Has a few groan worthy moments when the dialogue is painfully predictable and corny but it's charming and sweet, a type of film that we all need every now and again.
March 18, 2017
It's a tough task blending teen romance with sci-fi, but director Peter Chelsom concocts a pretty good hybrid in a film that delivers some enjoyable high-concept story ideas while turning the trusty fish-out-of-water convention up to 11.

Viewed as a harmless sci-fi-tinged teen drama, it passes the time pleasantly enough.

The space part of the title barely works. But at least the between us moments do.

An impressively original drama...

February 4, 2017
...a touching teenage love story about a couple literally from two worlds, and with Valentine's Day nearly upon us, a fitting date night at the movies.

The Space Between Us bears faint echoes of other outer-space sagas but carves its own niche because its hero is a teenage boy. It's a sweet, innocuous film nicely handled by director Peter Chelsom.

Teen girls especially ought to love this fish out of Mars tale that features an engaging turn from Asa Butterfield and some nice elements that make for an implausible but entertaining ride.

Fine performances by Asa Butterfield and Britt Robertson make this a pleasing little romantic adventure with a touch of sci-fi.

Teen sci-fi romance is sweet, if not out of this world.

February 3, 2017
Thematically, The Space Between Us may speak to teens who feel disenfranchised and misunderstood. Ultimately, though, it's a case study of a great concept diminished by a half-hearted effort.

A combination of Starman and The Fault In Our Stars.

An intriguing premise is repeatedly undercut by clunky dialog and corny plot twists.

With the disappearance of video stores, there is something heartening about the existence of "The Space Between Us," a cheesy hunk of science fiction from Peter Chelsom that once would have drawn curious young eyes to VHS shelves.
