Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A tactile, emotion-laden world of beauty, loss, recovery."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"Elliot Davis's pretty greeting-card cinematography, which lingers on birds, clouds and branches as it follows the seasonal changes, is better at evoking the passage of time and the rhythms of nature than all the sodden, pretentious dialogue."
‑ Stephen Holden, New York Times
"Beautifully shot, elegantly acted melodrama of the sailboating cure for what ails you."
‑ Roger Moore, Movie Nation
"Hide Away has more clunky moments than it does elegantly minimalist ones, the worst of which is the glimpse of what actually happened to the man's family."
‑ Alison Willmore, Movieline
"In "Hide Away," Josh Lucas plays an alcoholic widower who undergoes a spiritual rebirth by fixing up a sailboat, and I really wish he hadn't."
‑ Kyle Smith, New York Post
"It's basically just Lucas going through a short story-like period of reflection and redemption almost entirely without dialogue. It's not enough, but it is what this underappreciated actor does best."
‑ Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News
"Josh Lucas drinks, bats his watery eyes and stares into space for nearly 90 minutes in Hide Away. And yet somehow the actor overshadows the obvious life lessons that threaten to sink the project at every turn."
‑ Christian Toto, Big Hollywood
"[It] feels padded even in its brief running time; it's a slight mood piece posing as a character study."
‑ Sheri Linden, Los Angeles Times
"The film stays afloat, if barely, thanks to Elliot Davis's uncluttered camerawork, a surprisingly unsentimental denouement, and performers who deftly undersell the script's corniest pretensions."
‑ Eric Hynes, Village Voice
"Beautifully-shot, but undercooked and too heavy on metaphors. Josh Lucas elevates the film with a strong, well-nuanced performance."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
