Audience Reviews for Safe Passage

Good because of the acting. Nothing really happens in this movie, it's a great deal of waiting, which I understand is the point but in this case is not compelling enough.

Sunil Jawahir

Super Reviewer


A personal favorite.

Super Reviewer

From Ellyn Bache's novel about the feisty mother of seven boys, most of whom are now grown and out of the house, still worrying after them, concerned over their health and safety, which eventually puts a strain on her sanity. The relationship between the mother and the sons being the most explored and the relationship between the mother and father.The script is well written, the cast is uniformly excellent with Susan Sarandon at her always brilliant best.It is I think an entertaining and uplifting little movie that is worthy of a look.
