With 69% approval in the Rotten Tomatoesthe film drew a lot of attention from critics, who praised the way in which Wright led the direction.
Including the analysis of the MSB says:
“’Somewhere’ is an excellent directorial debut from Robin Wright, which also represents one of my favorite performances from her. An incredibly inspiring film that features unforgettable visuals and an extremely immersive soundtrack.”
Unfortunately, there are also comments highlighting how the plot is somewhat vague and lacks depth.
“All of the dilemmas here – from bear attacks to food shortages – are completely free of danger and simply exist to provide our star director with another chance to conduct wow-worthy photo shoots by the woodstove.” – Times UK
Don’t forget to watch:
“Wright is likable and believable, but we never truly perceive Edee or her desires outside the confines of her loss.” – Observer
“In his directorial debut, Robin Wright boldly seeks out new territory, but the film is too conventionally hemmed in, lacking a narrative as compelling as its own dramatic Wyoming setting.” – Empire
“With ‘One place‘, Robin Wright makes a noble attempt to present a sensible story about loss and resistance. However, a weak script prevents this from happening.” – InSession Film
