Movie Reviews

  • there's just not enough here to make it a worthwhile retread through familiar territory, proof of Robin Wright's basic competency as a director but nothing more
    2 of 5 by Benjamin Lee [The Guardian ]
  • the setup is ripe for a story we've all seen before; there are corners of this quiet little film -- less a plot-driven narrative than a two-person character study -- that feel powerfully true, in ways that surprise
    3 of 4 by Michael O'Sullivan [Washington Post ]
  • the film has nothing much to say about grief or the healing process; For a film that centers the quiet sadness and mental retreat of grief, Land equivocates with regards to the topic, stifling any meaningful growth
    2.5 of 5 by Mae Abdulbaki [ScreenRant ]
  • the beauty of Land lies in its simplicity; Robin Wright's performance as Edee is raw, emotional, and authentic
    3.5 of 4 by Mike McGranaghan [Aisle Seat ]
  • Robin Wright directs and stars in this simple but resonant story about a woman who finds personal salvation in a remote mountain cabin among a punishing, yet nourishing landscape
    3 of 4 by Katie Walsh [Tribune News Service ]
  • quietly heart-wrenching and keenly observed; "Land", which marks Robin Wright's first time at the helm of a feature, poses some of life's starkest questions with a simple, elemental force, and with deep wells of compassion
    by Sheri Linden [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • Edee is played by Robin Wright, who not only makes us feel her pain but also makes an effective and visually lush directorial debut about a woman who seeks to lose herself, but against her wishes is found
    3 of 4 by G. Allen Johnson [San Francisco Chronicle ]
  • despite pretty vistas and a typically watchable performance from Robin Wright, "Land" proffers rather too tidy a reiteration of things the movies taught us long ago about how embracing life..
    Review rate : B- by Jessica Kiang [The Playlist ]
  • a soulful, but simple, take on nature and trauma; Robin Wright is relaxed and almost meditative as she takes in the beauty of the horizon, and her simple directing captures the majesty of nature
    2 of 4 by Johnny Oleksinski [New York Post ]
  • a raw but beautiful, rich story about deep sadness, isolation, and healing through nature
    4.5 of 5 by Sabina Dana Plasse [Film Threat ]
  • a predictable grief drama and survival story; Mourning takes all shapes, grief has no timeline, and pain is as personal, but “Land” grapples so uneasily with such heady topics that the result is the total absence of new insights
    Review rate : C+ by Kate Erbland [IndieWire ]
  • a directorial debut so pure and simple; So bless Robin Wright for paring "Land" down to a beautiful haiku, and for delivering a performance that's ambiguous and understated in all the right ways
    by Peter Debruge [Variety ]
  • "Land" is both a tribute to the triumph of the human spirit and an examination of the difficulties of setting aside modern conveniences for primitive survival
    3 of 5 by James Berardinelli [ReelViews ]
  • "Land" is a visually-appealing and delicate feature debut for director Robin Wright and boasts another strong performance for the accomplished actress, even if its journey feels somewhat cliche and unoriginal
    3 of 5 by Lewis Knight [Daily Mirror (UK) ]
