    How many movies these days leave you wanting more? The funny and heartfelt Home is a small treasure. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    The picture is also the story of one character in particular, Bobby, and when it comes to Bobby, A Home at the End of the World is sappy and bogus. show more

    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. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    The beautiful Wright Penn has a harder time anchoring the free-spirited Clare in territory that feels honest and true - there's a stagey quality to the actress' performance that goes beyond the stagey quality of her character. show more

    Farrell has the toughest role, playing a man who doesn't understand the powerful crosscurrents of his own emotions, the love, guilt and loyalty that become opposing forces and begin to destroy the relationships he covets. show more

    Cunningham's 1990 novel makes an assured, if not entirely satisfying, transition to the big screen in this terrifically acted exploration of the bonds that transcend traditional notions of family. show more

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    At its best, A Home at the End of the World has great emotional strength. But it's not the towering achievement it might have been if Cunningham had stayed truer to his original inspiration. show more

    Colin Farrell is astonishing in the movie. show more

    Wesley Morris Boston Globe

    Bobby marks a turning point for Colin Farrell, whose vulgarities and inelegance tend to get the better of his range. show more

    Premiere

    Home is a difficult film for its viewer, because none of the leads fall into the comfortable categories of film characters played by movie stars. show more
