Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's sharply written, and moving without being mawkish, painting a portrait of people that we feel like we know."
‑ Cary Darling, Fort Worth Star-Telegram/
"This Is Where We Live benefits from the good taste of the filmmakers, whose appetite for understatement ensures that the picture maintains dramatic effectiveness and only rarely lurches into histrionics."
‑ Zachary Wigon, Village Voice
"Bleak, with moments of heart and even cuteness. "What's Eating Gilbert Grape" without the laughs."
‑ Roger Moore, Movie Nation
"This beautifully acted, admirably understated drama never succumbs to mawkishness."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"An admirably restrained, respectful portrait of the kinds of Americans contemporary films generally avoid showing at all--or if they do, treat with heavy-handed mawkishness."
‑ Frank Swietek, One Guy's Opinion
"THIS IS WHERE WE LVIE feels like a specimen of untempered life. Nothing rings false in this unassuming film."
‑ Meredith Borders, Badass Digest
"Though the developing bond between the two men - one of whom is virtually nonverbal - is credible and even touching, the storytelling is too oblique to reel you in."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"Melancholic, tender and understated."
‑ Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
