[A] handsomely lensed slice of life ...

September 2, 2017 | Full Review…

Fatherhood gets an incisive examination in "West of Sunshine," the short, sharp and rewarding feature debut of Australian writer-director Jason Raftopoulos.

September 1, 2017 | Full Review…

A drama crafted with precision and feeling, "West of Sunshine" succeeds admirably with its modest ambitions, as Jason Raftopoulos puts himself on the horizon as one to watch.

September 3, 2017 | Rating: B | Full Review…

[Damien] Hill does his best but Jim is woefully underwritten, a shuffling loser who various other characters try to bolster with the dignity of a back story that doesn't seem to fit his actual behaviour.

September 1, 2017 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

Ample location shots, and the unaffected presence of star Damien Hill and his real-life stepson Tyler Perham, help build a sincere and resonant effort that finds relatable insights in its slight yet involving scenario.

September 1, 2017 | Full Review…

Hill and Perham are a real-life stepfather and son, which probably helped with the ease of the acting. Both, though, deserve credit for excellent, affecting performances.
