All Critics (8) | Top Critics (4)

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

Top Critic

This beautifully acted, admirably understated drama never succumbs to mawkishness.

Hollywood Reporter
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.

New York Times
Top Critic

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.

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.
