[As] a more contemplative look at the ways unexplained tragedy plays with the emotions of people who supposedly have it all, it works.

Kieran Darcy-Smiths first feature mixes past and present, some few of such shifts adding to our understanding or familiarity with the returnees and deepening the mystery.

There are secrets kept and secrets told and Darcy-Smith and company do a marvelous job weaving this tapestry of ambiguity and confrontation.

The mysteries unravel at a steady pace and the dialogue and acting feel naturalistic, adding up to a taut and progressively tangled portrait of familial relations.

Even at its slowest, the insinuating "Wish You Were Here" keeps its grip, like a dream you just can't shake.

If you do decide to travel abroad, this film offers some tips on how to stay safe and sane - that is, if you can extract them from the teasingly elliptical, flashback-addled, nerve-racking narrative.

Reeling Reviews

...a twisty psychological thriller rooted in family drama that respects its audience. Little hints are dropped along the way, some suggested by cinematographer Jules O'Loughlin's framing and cutaways, but the film never feels contrived for a moment.

A pervasive mood of paranoia and unease overwhelms any immediate understanding of what's going on. It's fun to feel lost, at least for a spell.

Joel Edgerton's emergence as a bona-fide international star should give this smart, slick Australian-produced thriller a reasonably high profile and potentially attract a bigger audience than Oz fare usually attracts in the US

Tightly constructed and honest with character relationships, Wish You Were Here is a riveting study of guilt and moral corruption, wisely using disorientation to sustain interest in the bleak proceedings.

The structural fireworks of Darcy-Smith's first feature may ultimately provide more light than heat, but they don't distract unduly from its strong performances.
