"More essential than so much of what's on view today. [It] lets us look at ourselves with an acuity we'd love to recover for good."
Will Joyner, The New York Times
"Modest coming-of-age film packs a wallop because the crises in the life of its young protagonist turn out to really matter....a remarkable performance...a strong script with believable characters...pic works through understatement and an accumulation of small but telling moments...performances are all on the mark...adding to the film's pro polish."
Daniel Kimmel, Variety
"It's the extraordinary performance that Foley draws from [Stephanie] Castellarin that gives the film its vital center...For all its finesse and emotional veracity, Home Before Dark is above all generous as it revisits some keenly felt personal history and ties together its loose ends with love and empathy."
Jay Carr, The Boston Globe
