Perhaps MacLachlan was after a visual vocabulary that was as limited as his film's dialogue. In doing so, he's sold his story short. This crop feels like it needed more time to come out of the ground.

The director elects ... to back away from the story's edgier, more unnerving possibilities in favor of something altogether more soggy and formless.
October 2, 2017
A moment of silence for Amy Ryan's awards campaign that will never happen for her finely calibrated performance in Abundant Acreage Available.

Abundant Acreage Available may be a small film, but it's a deep and rich one, worthy of your full attention.
September 29, 2017
Amazingly, this is Ryan's first lead role in a feature film, and although the sparse Abundant Acreage doesn't always rise to her level, her understated but powerful performance brings the story to life - even in the dead of winter.

It might seem deceptively simple and straightforward, but this is a film with great depths that demands attentive rewatches.

Abundant Acreage Available is a quiet drama, calling into question whether a place can belong to a person, or if people are just temporary parts of the places they inhabit.

This lovely little story sensitively absorbs.

September 26, 2017
Alternately warm and brittle Southern dramedy of family, land religion and last-chances.

The movie offers a lesson in minimalist drama, unfolding as a sharply acted mood piece that never crescendos, but hums along with wise observations and first-rate performances.

While things remain more or less tame between the families, despite their sharp disagreements, the acting is universally fierce and finely nuanced, with all five wearing all the context you need to understand where they're coming from.
September 27, 2017
An intense and poignant drama about family, home, and letting go.

September 28, 2017
Each of the five superb actors gets a moment of dramatic glory out of Mr. MacLachlan's screenplay, which is about guilt, roots and the selfishness of implacable conviction. Each makes the most of it.
February 22, 2018
It's an intermittently charming portrait of a place and a way of life that dominates human destinies but in which those who are tough enough can find real fulfilment.

Only on the big screen are we able to fully appreciate the minutely detailed nature of Ryan's performance, revealing Tracy's soul via the slightest narrowing of the eyes or the almost-subliminal tensing of her cheekbones.
August 31, 2017
The movie is as tentative as the characters here which leads to two superbly performed beats in [Amy] Ryan's performance.

This is a modest story, but one rooted in big emotions.
September 28, 2017
Cinematographer Andrew Reed captures the harsh beauty of post-harvest winter in sharp relief: crunchy stalks left in the field, the sky a crystalline blue.
