Critic Reviews for The Free World

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (9) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (10)

  • While the religious stuff is clearly set forth, it's easy to overlook, given the abundant humanity radiated by the leads, the hothouse atmosphere of the murder investigation that threatens them, and the explosion of violence that forces the issue.

    October 27, 2016 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Despite the drama's questionable, abrupt shift into B-thriller territory, its leads remain affectingly rooted.

    September 29, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Dog metaphors prove to be only one of Jason Lew's problems, as his debut The Free World is riddled with more than a few unfortunate directorial choices.

    September 23, 2016 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • A movie that abruptly changes direction as it goes along while taking shortcuts that leave its characters underdeveloped and crucial plot elements barely fleshed out.

    September 22, 2016 | Full Review…
  • The pair get a good byplay going, and a couple of individual scenes sing, but overall, it's a creaky mess.

    May 3, 2016 | Full Review…
  • Lew offers up enough soft pleasures in this blend of existential drama and lovers-on-the-run thriller, letting us dwell on modest hopes and dreams, worthy of his seemingly minor story with a large emotional scope.
