Critic Reviews for Far From the Tree
There is much to think about in "Far From the Tree," a worthy and at times tender film.
The documentary is an attempt, in the words of those behind the film, to "investigate the very nature of family itself." That this attempt is overreaching and diffuse does not detract from the film's sporadic power.
At its most radical and empathetic, "Far From the Tree" urges us to start thinking of disability in terms of identity, not as a locus of struggle but a place of being.
Capably filmed by director Rachel Dretzin, this look at a diverse group of people is emotionally powerful without feeling manipulative.
Fair warning: By the end of "Far From the Tree," tears will be shed, and for all the best reasons.
