    Frank Scheck The Hollywood Reporter

    Annette Haywood-Carter’s slow-paced film features a plethora of colorful characters and incidents that register with little dramatic impact. show more

    Savannah gets by on touches of grace and spirited performances, especially by Caviezel. After being so serious for so very long, it’s great fun to see him take on a “genuine character” with all the boozing, brawling and shooting that entails. show more

    Farran Smith Nehme New York Post

    Director Annette Haywood-Carter films the proceedings with a sepia-tinged prettiness, but this is a Southern “Downton Abbey,” minus the loopy plot turns and wisecracks that make that series so addictive. show more

    Andrew Lapin The Dissolve

    A dull vanity project for the Southern highborn. show more

    Kevin Jagernauth The Playlist

    Savannah does attempt to tell the story of the friendship of those two accomplished men, but does so in a manner that is so astonishingly tone deaf, confused and narrowly focused that it leaves you almost amazed at the lack of vision behind the entire enterprise. show more

    Joe Leydon Variety

    Despite an effective Jim Caviezel, this anecdotal drama never rises above the level of lightly likable. show more

    Neil Genzlinger The New York Times

    The film’s tale ends up being less rich than its lovely Georgia settings. show more
