We first meet 33 year old Jack Hall in the midst of an exciting transitional period for him. Diagnosed with mental illness at the age of 19, he's had some rough times over the years. But, having gone through dozens of arrests and hospitalizations, he's brought himself to a point where he has a steady job, a stable place to live, has achieved a high level of recovery in his illness, and is ready to move on.

This movingly understated drama benefits from strong performances and incisive characterizations.
With awkward slow-motion effects, clunky transitions and pregnant zooms that seem conspicuously in the wrong speed or otherwise a little off, Mr. Oliver's film aims for a glossy mainstream aesthetic without the budget or skills to match.
The great achievement in writer-director Jono Oliver's poignant, superb debut, "Home," lies in the balance between the film's empathy for those like Jack who seek independence and its compassion for others who may need care indefinitely.
Remains character-driven throughout and doesn't have a moment that rings false, pretentious or contrived. Gbenga Akinnagbe gives a genuinely heartfelt performance. If there were any justice, he'd get some awards attention.

- Jack: When a person is sick like me, like I was, I mean, sometimes you do things you don't even know you're doing. Or you forget. The yelling; talking to myself... Losing control a little. I forgot a lot. There was the fire. And fights... and... and one time when you were five... we went to the zoo...
- Thomas: That's great, Jack. I'm glad it's all gonna go your way.
- Donald Hall: F' a plan, Jack. You need to be realistic.
