Adams, yet again, commands the screen with authenticity and simplicity, but the film lacks commitment.

Where the film excels is in capturing the quiet revelations in Marie's life over the few days it chronicles - revelations that represent the aftermath of choices made years before, when expectations were higher.

A minor effort in a filmography largely composed of them, "All the Light in the Sky" is nonetheless satisfying on the terms it establishes early on.

Without preaching, "All the Light in the Sky" poses questions that are worth asking, even if we know the answers.

No shot looks like it was set up, and, fictional names aside, it's never clear whether actors are speaking in-character or voicing their own opinions.

Anyone who has lived in Los Angeles for more than a few years will recognize the character type Adams plays here, though it's never been articulated quite so well on film.

[A] tediously naturalistic and fairly pointless no-budget indie about the compromises of middle-aged femininity.

With his solar measurements and celestial allusions, the real-life environmental entrepreneur David Siskind gives the drama a cosmic context, and Swanberg-who is also the cinematographer-makes luminous images to match.
