[A] heartwarming if conventional portrait of four refugee Syrian families navigating new lives in Baltimore.

Moves no needles cinematically or politically, but makes a heartening call for open-armed empathy in an America still guarded on that front.

Even with this remarkable degree of access ... the film still lacks a distinct sense of drama.

Where it could do more to work inside its characters' heads, it pulls back.

It is Shiva's lightness of touch that sells the film. Just as she lets the politics of the situation show through by examining their impact, her unobtrusive, observational style also helps the families feel free to recount their stories of trauma.

"This Is Home" is no "City of Ghosts" or "Last Men In Aleppo," it is unlikely to cause the seismic quake required to shake the apathy from the masses, but it is a much-needed reminder that a journey never quite ends when you think it does.
