It's sharply written, and moving without being mawkish, painting a portrait of people that we feel like we know.
This beautifully acted, admirably understated drama never succumbs to mawkishness.
Though the developing bond between the two men - one of whom is virtually nonverbal - is credible and even touching, the storytelling is too oblique to reel you in.
This Is Where We Live benefits from the good taste of the filmmakers, whose appetite for understatement ensures that the picture maintains dramatic effectiveness and only rarely lurches into histrionics.
An admirably restrained, respectful portrait of the kinds of Americans contemporary films generally avoid showing at all--or if they do, treat with heavy-handed mawkishness.
Melancholic, tender and understated.
Bleak, with moments of heart and even cuteness. "What's Eating Gilbert Grape" without the laughs.
THIS IS WHERE WE LVIE feels like a specimen of untempered life. Nothing rings false in this unassuming film.
