HOME REVIEWS


“Harden and Scheel's chemistry makes the mother-daughter dynamic universal.”

– The Village Voice
"It’s a collection of beautifully acted fragments... (with) Ms. Harden, a great actress who never shies away from truthfulness." – The New York Times
 
“Harden and Scheel bring authenticity … They're the real thing.” National Public Radio
Home manages to be an absorbing, inspirational and often heartwarming drama with radiant, captivating performances by Marcia Gay Harden and her real-life daughter, Eulala Scheel.” – NYCMovieGuru.com
“3 Stars. Home is a once-in-a-lifetime vehicle for Marcia Gay Harden. Harden is devastating to watch… brilliant.” - Hartford Courant
“Marcia Gay Harden’s extraordinary talent is again on display in (the) poignant film Home… touching… a rich and rewarding experience... beautifully filmed. The performances of mother and daughter are breathtaking (in) this beautifully

crafted film.” – ThePeoplesCritic.com


“The Montreal World Film Festival justifies its existence with movies like HOME.

A lovely American independent drama... visually exquisite.”



The Montreal Gazette
“The American film that took my breath away...

Harden’s career best performance… unforgettably powerful.

Kudos to writer director Mary Haverstick! But can a small, low budget indie make its way all the way from the Montreal Film Festival to the Oscar race?

Well, if anything has a chance of going the distance, it’s Home.”



– Stephen Holt – MOVIECITY NEWS & TimeWarner Cable TV
“Mary Haverstick has filmed human existence, full of beauty and ugliness, of pride and shame, of hopes and deception. The film is in itself a poem.”

“A dramatic and moving saga, highly recommended.”



– Library Bookwatch



HOME REVIEWS

"A very beautiful film, lyrical and poetic.

A film that is at the same time sad and filled with hope, with an ensemble

of excellent actors and filmed in serene landscapes

with pure white clouds and vivid blue skies.”


  • Jacqueline Mallette – ARTS & CULTURE –ServicesMontreal.com

“The other American film that took my breath away was the dreamily astounding Home. Wherein in previous Oscar winner Marcia Gay Harden, proves she is for sure one of America’s greatest actresses and a national treasure.  Harden gives a heart-stopping performance.  It’s like an encyclopedia of great acting… and she is matched heartbeat-for-heartbeat by the astounding performance of her 8 year old real-life daughter Eulala Scheel, who was 7 when she made this moving, haunting movie. But can a small, low budget indie make it’s way all the way from the Montreal Film Festival to the Oscar race? Well, if anything has a chance of going the distance, it’s Home.” Movie City News


“Home is one of those movies that remind you of why Independent cinema is so good. Marcia Gay Harden is nothing short of magnificent. Simply breath-taking... a powerful film that will have you in tears as well as leaving you with a smile and hope… (a) brilliant film.”

– www.VideoViews.org

Home boasts superb acting and unusual depth that put it several notches above many works of its ilk. Harden is an amazing actress, and her performance here -- loving, brutal and unyieldingly ambivalent - is typically superb. But the greater discovery is that her

10-year-old daughter, Scheel, apparently inherited mom's thespian skills.” – DVDtalk

“3 Stars. Recommended.  Poetic and Lyrical.” – Video Librarian
“This is a delightful, nearly-perfect film. A beautiful, stirring, exquisite exploration of art and the human spirit. I can’t recommend this film heartily enough.”

– ChristianCinema.com

HOME SYNOPSIS
a beautiful, moving and lyrical film that deals with whether or not

love is a more powerful force than destiny
Inga (Academy award winner Marcia Gay Harden) is a poet. She wants to buy and restore a house she is drawn to that reminds her of her childhood home, but her distant husband Hermann (Michael Gaston) sees little value in it or many of the things Inga loves. Inga realizes that many things in her life are coming full circle.
Her crumbling marriage is a stark contrast to her relationship with her

8-year-old daughter, (Eulala Scheel, Ms. Harden's real life daughter) with

whom she shares her hopes, fears and inner-most thoughts following her

recovery from breast cancer. By day their lives seem magical, full of cloud

watching, kite flying and lazy summer drives. But at night, Inga is troubled

by her marriage, its lack of intimacy and her fear of her own mortality.


By weaving optimism into her life’s story it is in her own writing that she hears the echo of her mother’s journey and experiences the revelation that allows her transformation.
