Movie Reviews

Time Out New York - 10/10 by Joshua Rothkopf Funny and heartbreaking, this is a movie that would have made the '80s-era Jonathan Demme, attuned to American anxieties, blush with pride.
Philadelphia Inquirer - 9/10 by Carrie Rickey Corinne's journey begins with an act of blind faith. The movie ends, but you have a palpable sense that the journey does not.
NPR - 9/10 by Jeannette Catsoulis What follows is something rarely seen in American movies: a sincerely humane examination of what it means to experience a crisis of faith. Tender, bittersweet and often gently comedic, Corinne's 20-year journey toward (and around, and away from) her God has a loose, searching rhythm that's engrossingly unpredictable.
Rolling Stone - 9/10 by Peter Travers Farmiga expertly guides a large and gifted ensemble cast and proves as fearless a director as she is an actress. She lights up Higher Ground and makes it funny, touching and vital.
Chicago Sun-Times - 9/10 by Roger Ebert There are no heavy-handed portraits of holy rollers here, just people whose view of the world is narrow. There are also no outsize sinners, just some gentle singer-songwriters who are too fond of pot and whose lyrics are parades of cliches.
Chicago Tribune - 9/10 by Michael Phillips Farmiga's film doesn't state things directly, but we sense what is happening to Corinne, and how some turn to fundamentalism for complex and interconnected reasons.
Los Angeles Times - 9/10 by Robert Abele The same intelligence, wit and mature spirit that actress Vera Farmiga brings to her performances is richly apparent in her directorial debut as well, the inquisitive spiritual drama Higher Ground.
Times-Picayune - 8/10 by Mike Scott It lubes its audiences' mental gears and sets them to spinning without insulting anyone and without issuing threats of eternal damnation. Subtlety, thy name is Vera.
Time - 8/10 by Richard Corliss As director, Farmiga is a strong believer in cinematic democracy, allowing the other actors to seize the center of the action and the frame.
Entertainment Weekly - 8/10 by Owen Gleiberman Higher Ground breaks crucial, sacred ground in American moviemaking.
Matt's Movie Reviews - 8/10 by Matthew Pejkovic Higher Ground is a delicate exploration of faith gained and lost, told through strong acting and graceful direction by Vera Farmiga.
New York Daily News - 8/10 by Elizabeth Weitzman This would be tricky territory for the most experienced director, but I can't remember the last time I saw organized religion handled in such an even-handed, thoughtful manner.
