|NPR 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.|
|Miami Herald Connie Ogle Higher Ground is ultimately a proponent of the human spirit, of the individuality and honesty that must be claimed, even at a high price. That's a lot of substance to stuff into one little movie, but Farmiga makes it fit astonishingly well.|
|Orlando Sentinel Roger Moore Farmiga directs and plays this as a woman with questions. Thus, the tone is a bit all over the place - frank discussion and depictions of sex, but with an equally frank embrace of Christianity, talking the talk and walking the walk.|
|Chicago Tribune 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.|
|Time 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.|
|Austin Chronicle Marjorie Baumgarten Higher Ground may not be a true revelation, but it does show a viable path an actor might take to shape intelligent material on her own terms.|
|The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Rick Groen The film's quiet realism demands from us our own act of faith: We're asked to watch closely and to listen intently in the promise of a greater reward to come. Well, the promise is partly kept.|
|The Hollywood Reporter Kirk Honeycutt The film is a deft, graceful and often poignant story of a woman's quest to find her own identity and a spiritual sanctuary that will give her life hope and meaning.|
