Directed by Chris Eyre, Hide Away follows the story of a successful businessman (Josh Lucas) attempting to resurrect his life. Entering an idyllic harbor as a broken and haunted man, he buys and boards the dilapidated sailboat, Hesperus. Disturbed at night by unsettling dreams of his family, the boat becomes a beacon of hope as he begins the challenge of bringing back the shine to the tarnished star. -- (C) Official Site

In "Hide Away," Josh Lucas plays an alcoholic widower who undergoes a spiritual rebirth by fixing up a sailboat, and I really wish he hadn't.
[It] feels padded even in its brief running time; it's a slight mood piece posing as a character study.
Elliot Davis's pretty greeting-card cinematography, which lingers on birds, clouds and branches as it follows the seasonal changes, is better at evoking the passage of time and the rhythms of nature than all the sodden, pretentious dialogue.
It's basically just Lucas going through a short story-like period of reflection and redemption almost entirely without dialogue. It's not enough, but it is what this underappreciated actor does best.
The film stays afloat, if barely, thanks to Elliot Davis's uncluttered camerawork, a surprisingly unsentimental denouement, and performers who deftly undersell the script's corniest pretensions.
Beautifully shot, elegantly acted melodrama of the sailboating cure for what ails you.
Josh Lucas drinks, bats his watery eyes and stares into space for nearly 90 minutes in Hide Away. And yet somehow the actor overshadows the obvious life lessons that threaten to sink the project at every turn.
Beautifully-shot, but undercooked and too heavy on metaphors. Josh Lucas elevates the film with a strong, well-nuanced performance.
