Ann Hornaday
Washington Post
Watching Spacek dance around the bedroom, slowly loosening up while Laura Nyro plays, is one of the joys of this cinematic season. Full Review
Claudia Puig
USA Today
The movie is really a lovely ensemble piece. Beautifully conceived and written by Michael Cunningham (Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Hours), the film has a distinctly novelistic and literate style. Full Review
Dana Stevens
The New York Times
In parceling his story into discrete scenes, Mr. Cunningham has turned a delicate novel into a bland and clumsy film. A Home at the End of the World, is so thoroughly decent in its intentions and so tactful in its methods that people are likely to persuade themselves that it's better than it is, which is not very good. Full Review
David Rooney
Driven by soulful performances and by a genuine sense of wonder for the unpredictable permutations of love and family. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
The film's first half is easily the best and brightest. As the movie moves into the more saddening sections, however, it loses most of its power. Full Review
