Nell Minow
Common Sense Media

Movie about adultery for adults only.

Prairie Miller
Long Island Press

Summons the exposed anatomy of adultery out of its awkward secrecy, casting an intriguing light that gently and intelligently intimates why infidelity can self-destruct one marriage, and repair another.

Apollo Guide

A modest film that is surprisingly effective in its directness and fascinating for its complex portrayals of marital distress in action.

Like the movie's title, there doesn't appear to be anybody home in this picture.

[Y]our expectations of climax, resolution, consolation fall away and you're quite simply present in every detail of every moment.

Shadows on the Wall

So packed with serious themes that it's almost unbearable.

Emanuel Levy
EmanuelLevy.Com

Keenly observed and laced with humor, Larry Gross' narrative has the kind of emotional power that derives from accumulation of detail and realistic dialogue.

Glenn Kenny
Premiere Magazine

Dubus, anticipating the dreaded Raymond Carver, is only concerned with the interiority of the characters. It's solipsism once removed; and in this film, it's that times four.

FilmFocus

Occasionally difficult to watch, but always gripping, and full of hard, painful truths, this is adult film making at its very best.

Michael Ferraro
Film Threat

Great performances and candid dialogue don't make up all the essence of a great film. The actual story itself is where the film falls flat.

Nick's Flick Picks

They never lived anywhere: the protagonists of this drama of marital stalemate embody a widespread social institution without ever reminding us of Earth as we know it.

Portrays domestic discord with a squirmy accuracy that's a workable substitute for conceptual freshness.

We Don't Live Here Anymore is, you might say, a movie for adults who are, perhaps, a smidge too impressed with being adults.

James Sanford
Kalamazoo Gazette

held together by the remarkably vivid and varied performances of Ruffalo, Dern, Watts and Krause, each of whom gets his or her share of juicy moments and sharp dialogue.

If one line can sum up a story, it's when Edith tells Jack, "Even adultery has a morality to it."...this is a good, tight script telling an involving story

Nothing more than a series of scenes set in darkened rooms in which grownups argue with and lie to each other. It is a Lifetime movie, only with a better cast.

Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? gets in bed with Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice....The moody, muted finale doesn't leave the characters, it simply abandons them.
