We first meet 33 year old Jack Hall in the midst of an exciting transitional period for him. Diagnosed with mental illness at the age of 19, he's had some rough times over the years. But, having gone through dozens of arrests and hospitalizations, he's brought himself to a point where he has a steady job, a stable place to live, has achieved a high level of recovery in his illness, and is ready to move on.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Oliver is off to a promising start. Let's hope it's enough to get his next go-round a wider theatrical release."
‑ Stephanie Merry, Washington Post
"The great achievement in writer-director Jono Oliver's poignant, superb debut, "Home," lies in the balance between the film's empathy for those like Jack who seek independence and its compassion for others who may need care indefinitely."
‑ Inkoo Kang, Los Angeles Times
"A smart, engaging and superbly acted indie drama that knows and shows its title can be not just a physical place but a state of settled mind."
‑ Brent Simon, Shockya.com
"This movingly understated drama benefits from strong performances and incisive characterizations."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"The casting director needs a raise."
‑ Chris Packham, Village Voice
"With awkward slow-motion effects, clunky transitions and pregnant zooms that seem conspicuously in the wrong speed or otherwise a little off, Mr. Oliver's film aims for a glossy mainstream aesthetic without the budget or skills to match."
‑ Miriam Bale, New York Times
"Remains character-driven throughout and doesn't have a moment that rings false, pretentious or contrived. Gbenga Akinnagbe gives a genuinely heartfelt performance. If there were any justice, he'd get some awards attention."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
