  • "The Sunlit Night"... resembles the second half of Alexander Payne's "Downsizing," which proved that a similarly end-of-the-earth locale doesn't make dull characters any more exotic or exciting.

  • Slate gives her best to an underdeveloped role that was likely deeper in the novel by Rebecca Dinerstein, who makes her screenwriting debut with this adaptation.

  • It is as if The Sunlit Night aims to be unconventional merely for the sake of it. It has all of the dressings of a lovable indie, complete with the unusual setting and affable feel, but ultimately, it's structured in a way that fails to do it justice.

  • Don't bother trying to connect the dots because this movie is all over the place.
