All Critics (5) | Fresh (5)

  • There's a proud, authentic resilience within these characters making them all the more compelling as they face the arduous realities of a brave new world.

    October 9, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • I never once looked at my watch or wished the film would end. One is much less easily affected when viewing a film alone, but in that empty little room I repeatedly wept and rejoiced.

    July 23, 2020 | Full Review…
  • The New Land is a film filled with original touches and intelligent insights, into the hardy, heroic families who built the foundations of Canada and the United States a century ago.

    January 30, 2020 | Full Review…
  • Nowhere has the experience of European emigration to America been told so forcefully and definitively as in Swedish director Jan Troell's duo, The Emigrants and The New Land.

    January 16, 2017 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…
  • Troell shows us the human face of the ordeal, balancing tragedy with comedy and intimacy with scope in a way that few filmmakers have accomplished.

    February 18, 2016 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
