Critic Reviews for The Closer We Get

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (12)

  • Cannot wait to see what Guthrie does next, or whether she'll find a story as rich as this one.

    November 9, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • It's oddly intimate fare, at times a touch too inward looking ... but honest and heartfelt throughout, driven by an unfashionable desire to heal, rather than merely reopen, old wounds.

    November 8, 2015 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • In the adroitly observed The Closer We Get, a family crisis turns into an autobiographical detective story when the film director Karen Guthrie returns home to care for her mother in the seaside town of Largs in North Ayrshire.

    November 5, 2015 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Some scenes, inevitably, make painful viewing, but Guthrie proves fearless about peering into those interpersonal grey areas most clans shy away from.
