Movie Info

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.

Oliver is off to a promising start. Let's hope it's enough to get his next go-round a wider theatrical release.

Top Critic

This movingly understated drama benefits from strong performances and incisive characterizations.

Hollywood Reporter
Top Critic

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.

New York Times
Top Critic

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.

The casting director needs a raise.

Village Voice
Top Critic

The affecting and low-key drama skips past the usual dramatic scenes of someone who has suffered a psychotic breakdown, instead showing us the quieter but more convincing struggle of someone trying to piece his life back together afterwards.

½

A touching and realistic look at mental illness that is overall uplifting despite its honesty and still remains to bring some hope to those stuffing from the disease and shows one mans triumph and determination despite what can seem to overcome impossible obstacles from within and outside. Brilliantly acted by actors who make you want to care and root for the characters, without being overly mushy. A much more realistic look then the much more popular Silver Lining Platbook. Definitely worth the viewing. Again. The acting was excellent

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.

A good film, one of the better ones to play at Dances With Film festival in Hollywood in the spring, that is elevated by Gbenga Akinnagbe's amazing performance, the best male performance I've seen all year.
