Movie Info

Gathered one summer in a beautiful shoreline town, three generations are drawn together by their patriarch, played by Oscar (R) Nominee Robert Loggia. With endearing moments of humor and uplifting spirit, HARVEST is a portrait of a family awkwardly yet delicately hanging on to what was, what now is, and to one another. A superb ensemble cast, including Tony (R) Winner Victoria Clark, Arye Gross, newcomer Jack Carpenter and also featuring Oscar (R) Nominee Barbara Barrie tugs on heartstrings and reminds us of a love that can weather all storms in this poignant yet amusing story. HARVEST brings to mind how we all come of age, in our own stumbling yet loving ways, often again and again. -- (C) Monterey Mediamore

Vagueness is the hallmark of Marc Meyers' sophomore outing.

If this isn't "King Lear" or Chekhov, "Harvest" shows the truth of life as it is lived, growing messier and more complicated as the days dwindle and last chances loom.

Top Critic

This is largely a non-narrative piece, the director employing a slice-of-life-in-crisis approach that only works if the characters or the situations are sharply drawn. Neither are.

It's safe to say that 'Harvest' is a modest film, but those are often the ones that pull on our emotions the most.

Robert Loggia gets in touch with his more vulnerable side while never letting go of the wiseguy, duking it out with mortality and doing Old Man And The Sea. Though as he describes it, via bicycle as opposed to a boat, serving as a chariot to oblivion.

Audience Reviews for Harvest

Good story about life lessons and interesting characters with some decent depth, but the poor writing of the incidental lines throughout the film hurt it.

Great cast explores a family that comes together around its dying patriarch, wonderfully played by Robert Loggia.

This thoughtful, carefully scripted film treats the difficult and sensitive issues of illness, and being a caregiver.... and of course love and loss, life and death. Robert Loggia and Barbara Barrie truly shine in nuanced performances, although the entire cast does a beautiful job. Marc Meyers direction is perfect. Bravo to all!
