What to know

critics consensus

Glacially paced and ineptly plotted, Aloft crushes the game efforts of a talented cast under a dreary viewing experience whose title proves sadly ironic. Read critic reviews

Audience Reviews for Aloft

  • Jan 20, 2016
    A little monotonous, Aloft is an intriguing character drama but it doesn't flesh out its ideas very well. The story follows the son of a reclusive faith healer who, after being estranged from his mother for nearly 20 years, teams up with a reporter in order to track her down. Jennifer Connelly, Cillian Murphy, and Melanie Laurent lead the cast and give strong performances. And the visual aesthetic has a bleak and mystic quality to it that sets an atmospheric tone. Yet the storytelling is rather weak and does a poor job at developing the characters. However, despite its flaws Aloft is an interesting film with some compelling themes.

    Despite one of the plotlines being a lot less engaging than the other, especially with an unnecessary love affair thrown in for no reason and Laurent's poorly developed character, this is still an interesting film about a man's spiritual journey through sorrow, guilt and closure.
