This film shows how much America has grown up since I was in Vietnam. You can be against the war and love the men and women who serve. This is an inspiration to future generations on how to treat those who choose to serve.

This beautiful film serves as an example of why the World War II generation is one of the greatest generations that ever was...and is.

Washington Post
Not so much a slice of life as the whole pie, the highs and lows of twilight living, all found and filmed in a terminal at an airport in Maine. What a country. Full Review

Becomes a bracing portrait of three fascinating individuals who use this work as a means to keep living. Full Review

The New York Times
Unfailingly modest and profoundly humane, The Way We Get By profiles three people over 70 whose lives have been changed by a simple act of service. Full Review
John Anderson
Variety
Although the trio's work as "troop greeters" is the film's ostensible subject, their renewed and somewhat tenuous sense of purpose gives the doc its bite. Full Review
