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