Critic Reviews for Tumbledown
First-time director Sean Mewshaw and screenwriter Desi Van Til - they're married - have decided, intriguingly, to craft a movie about loss and letting go. And they've done so with uncommon humor and heart.
Tumbledown comes up light in the categories that matter most, miring a capable cast in a forced cable-knit folksiness familiar to anyone who has ever watched anything set in New England.
Hall and Sudeikis circle around one another warily, erupting into defensiveness, shutting each other out, then letting each other back in. There's a rhythm to it. Mewshaw helps sustain that rhythm.
We're meant to warm to Hannah and Andrew as they wear each other down with good-natured ribbing. But Ms. Hall and Mr. Sudeikis hardly warm up themselves, showing little chemistry and looking unsure how to play the film's tone, or the would-be zingers.
Audience Reviews for Tumbledown
A film about letting go and moving on which is well written and superbly acted by Hall and Sudeikis. It is slow moving but it's endgame is satisfying and proof that films without explosions can be entertaining. A nice date movie and it also features great supporting performances especially Blythe Danner and Richard Masur. 09-10-2016
Jason Sudeikis and the other woman give great performances! The directing and writing were very unique, and I loved it! I love movies about music, and this one is on the list! It's an indie movie for indie or hipster people. I also thought it had some laughs. But that's not it's main goal (it may not even have comedy listed as one of its genres.) It's not perfect though. And it doesn't quite hold up all the way through. Towards the end it gets a little slow and boring, and it stops being as original. That makes the movie feel a bit long. But still, I thought that this was good enough, and worth watching. I can't say that I would buy it in any form, or even wanna watch it again. But it's definitely a possibility.
Solid movie. Very good acting, good chemistry. Even the small part characters where well acted. The parents were fantastic. I kept hoping to learn just a tad bit more about Hunter, because even though the movie was about a writer wanting to get to know him better, you never do. I'll give this one a soft recommendation.
