  • The film has an atmosphere of endless experimentation, which compliments the constant revision the subjects apply to their lives in the wake of their economic insecurity.

  • A sneakily compelling, endlessly patient observation of three working-class families in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan.

  • Rather than high drama, these are moments of plain being, a rare immersion into the everyday lives of strangers.

  • "Northern Light" can be monotonous.

    January 30, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/4
  • You feel as though you've been given the keys to a town that trusts you to look around at your own pace and turn off the light on your way out. And the longer you stay, the less you feel like leaving.

    June 18, 2014 | Rating: B+
  • Gets past the Joe Six-Pack, NASCAR fan stereotypes and shows you how ordinary working class people work and play. Given the deepening class divisions in the USA, a film that illuminates how people survive psychologically.
