A winning and soul-stirring exploration of the spiritual meaning of one man's sacrificial death.
May 20, 2003
Though there is a near vaccuum at the center of the film, Sommersby is never boring, largely because of Ms. Foster's beautifully self-possessed presence.

A powerful piece of filmmaking. Gere and Foster are as immaculate as always.

At least satisfying and often is poignant.

From start to finish, it is a well-crafted film: part love story, part mystery, and all drama.

If you're looking for a picturesque romance -- with a little intrigue on the side -- you could do worse than Sommersby.
January 1, 2000
It's really an old-fashioned hankie-soaker with Gere and Foster ably jerking tears. An odd yet convincing couple, they won't replace Rhett and Scarlet, and frankly, my dears, who can? But belles wring and bosoms heave in a manner most pleasing.
January 1, 2000
The cast is uniformly good, including Gere in the title role. But it's Foster who really glows here, giving her character a sense of depth and innocence that makes the entire unlikely premise more palatable.

Lacks whatever magical ingredient there is that makes a film a moving experience and instead settles for being an adequate but not a remarkable achievement.

The story idea is an interesting one, but it doesn't quite pan out in the end. There are too many unanswered questions and unresolved conflicts.
