Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"An affecting character study for mature viewers."
‑ Richard Kuipers, Variety
"Anchored by two outstanding performances, Unfinished Sky is an engaging and intriguing drama."
‑ Andrew L. Urban, Urban Cinefile
"Works best as horror: a woman hunted and trapped in equal measure."
‑ Luke Goodsell, Empire Magazine Australasia
"Unfinished Sky is one of those films whose elements sneak up so cleverly, that we are swept away before we know it. ... one of the best Australian films of the year"
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"McInnes and Hendrickx spark off each other beautifully as lost souls who slowly form a bond."
‑ Don Groves, sbs.com.au
"Peter Duncan's remake of Dutch hit The Polish Bride is a small film with a big story to tell."
‑ Sandra Hall, Sydney Morning Herald
"There are a couple of credibility gaps with the film's thriller resolution which prove mildly distracting but it's the delicate love story that lingers."
‑ Margaret Pomeranz, At the Movies (Australia)
"A solid adult drama which holds quite a bit of depth for a 90 min production."
‑ Matthew Pejkovic, Matt's Movie Reviews
"This hysterically melodramatic climax marks it as a sure contender for worst Australian film of the year."
‑ Jake Wilson, The Age (Australia)
"There might be a future for small Australian films as well crafted as this one."
‑ Des Partridge, Courier Mail (Australia)
