Dana Stevens
The New York Times
If there is heartbreak in this movie, there is also a sense of energy that makes it almost exhilarating. Full Review
Derek Elley
Makes engrossing viewing for much of the way...but stumbles dramatically in its final leg. Full Review
Desson Thomson
Washington Post
Although fictionalized, it feels depressingly real. It's a 90-minute newsreel with a broken heart. Full Review
Jonathan Curiel
San Francisco Chronicle
By humanizing an immigrant/refugee crisis that is not abating, Winterbottom does a cinematic service that happens to be damn interesting, too. Full Review
Keith Phipps
The Onion (A.V. Club)
Has a message, which it effectively conveys by succeeding first as an affecting film. Winterbottom's actors give a human face to current events as they proceed along their grim road-movie toward a destination that may not even want them. They may be statistics, too, but their stories stick in the mind. Full Review
