Critic Reviews for Hide Away (A Year in Mooring)

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (8)

  • A tactile, emotion-laden world of beauty, loss, recovery.

  • In "Hide Away," Josh Lucas plays an alcoholic widower who undergoes a spiritual rebirth by fixing up a sailboat, and I really wish he hadn't.

  • [It] feels padded even in its brief running time; it's a slight mood piece posing as a character study.

  • Elliot Davis's pretty greeting-card cinematography, which lingers on birds, clouds and branches as it follows the seasonal changes, is better at evoking the passage of time and the rhythms of nature than all the sodden, pretentious dialogue.

  • It's basically just Lucas going through a short story-like period of reflection and redemption almost entirely without dialogue. It's not enough, but it is what this underappreciated actor does best.

  • The film stays afloat, if barely, thanks to Elliot Davis's uncluttered camerawork, a surprisingly unsentimental denouement, and performers who deftly undersell the script's corniest pretensions.

Audience Reviews for Hide Away (A Year in Mooring)

"Hide Away" starts with a man(Josh Lucas) arriving at a marina to buy a boat. Unfortunately, it turns out to be something of a fixer-upper, leading him to have much less fun than the other man(Jon Tenney, of "Maxwell & King) there in the midst of a midlife crisis. Of course, the drinking does not help. Yes, "Hide Away" can be something of a slog, especially early on, as it is never any fun watching a character trying to drink himself to death. But with a little help from a good supporting cast that also includes Ayelet Zurer and James Cromwell, the movie gently shows how none of us are ever as alone as we think we are. Plus, I again admit my fondness for Josh Lucas, along with the area of the country where this movie was made.

"I guess this movie was about moving on from a tragedy and trying to deal with that. But the movie was just not good. The whole thing seemed pointless. He spent most of his time drinking and passing out on his boat by himself and not talking to anyone. It was just a bit too depressing for me, which is shocking, I like dark depressing flicks. Just not this kind I guess."
