The central characters' coupledom might bring them a safe haven, but audiences will be left out in the cold.
Just as unsatisfying and unrealistic as a happily-ever-after story about a damsel and a prince she has barely met.
Jessica Goldberg's sluggish directorial debut feels like a leftover from the 1990s, when dank indie dramas littered film-festival lineups.
Even at its well-meaning best, Refuge is listless.
Refuge opens like many a character-driven indie of a certain budget and ambition, but develops into a beautiful subtle character study led convincingly by the four performances at its core.
Complex film about family trauma has heavy themes.
Short, depressing, beautifully acted ...
[...] Refuge's true effectiveness lies in Ritter's distinctively non-angelic performance. It's the work of a woman who knows she's been dealt a bad hand, but can't bring herself to leave the game.
The problem with the film isn't the contrivance of its premise, it's that writer-director Jessica Goldberg doesn't know it's contrived.
Very slight, but lovely film. I really liked it a lot.
The story is a young woman, played by Krysten Ritter (I really am starting to like her a lot as an actress), has returned from college to her small town home to care for her younger brother and sister after the death of her parents.
She meets a guy who is passing through, and the damaged pair form a relationship.
It's not a fairytale, and nothing amazing happens, but it is a sweet movie.
Very brief at 80 minutes. I was sorry to see it end.
I really felt for all these characters and believed them.
