It's sharply written, and moving without being mawkish, painting a portrait of people that we feel like we know.

Top Critic

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.

Village Voice
Top Critic

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.

An unbelievable film. So beautifully done and so understated that I was truly captivated. Great performances all around, and great cinematography, giving us a real sense of small town Texas life. "This Is Where We Live," is an honest portrait of a family whose struggle, although unique, is very relatable.
