'From the milk we drank together, something of my blood, my life is in you,' Musa tells Danae, and explains more about this moving portrait than any political debate could.
| Original Score: 3/4
Amounts to little more than pictures from a family album.

It's a documentary of Upstairs Downstairs dimension.
| Original Score: 2/4
[The filmmaker] veers into self-indulgence, but Obeidallah's drive to give his kids a better life - even at the risk of abandoning their homeland - is touching.

The man at its heart is a 76-year-old Palestinian named Musa, and if he and we are never quite sure what the movie is truly about it's still a pleasure to make his acquaintance.
| Original Score: C+
Elon uses quiet and silence to great effect.
| Original Score: 3/4
Layered, loving and deeply personal.
Compelling with its inside-out look at the crisis of the Middle-East, even if there is a fair bit of narcissism involved.
| Original Score: 3/5
Though, at times a bit incomplete, this documentary is still quite endearing, engaging and extremely educational in matters of politics and heart.
A work of powerful humanism that could unsettle entrenched points of view.
Elon shines a light on Israeli-Palestinian relations in ways that are profound, human and hopeful.
Elon presumably intends to send a positive message about individual relationships transcending politics, but the film leaves too much unsaid to do so.
Full of heart-rending moments, in which people of good faith search for answers to what, in the end, remain painfully irreconcilable questions.
Fascinating in its reticence, pic's honest, well-intentioned exploration involving two families fearlessly emerges with a far different picture than was originally envisioned.
This brisk, flavorful film deals with the difficult strains that politics can put on personal relations...
Elon has created a poignant exploration of not only the Palestinian/Israeli conflict but also the deep, complex bonds between loved ones.
Touching, painful and powerfully affecting, Another Road Home is an amazing achievement of personal filmmaking.
| Original Score: 4.5/5
