Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Without preaching, "All the Light in the Sky" poses questions that are worth asking, even if we know the answers. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Dec 19, 2013

Fresh: Anyone who has lived in Los Angeles for more than a few years will recognize the character type Adams plays here, though it's never been articulated quite so well on film. – Andrew Barker, Variety, Dec 18, 2013

Rotten: [A] tediously naturalistic and fairly pointless no-budget indie about the compromises of middle-aged femininity. – Inkoo Kang, Village Voice, Dec 17, 2013

Fresh: Where the film excels is in capturing the quiet revelations in Marie's life over the few days it chronicles - revelations that represent the aftermath of choices made years before, when expectations were higher. – Joel Arnold, NPR, Dec 20, 2013

A beautiful, middle aged, sunny picture!

This film is warm and kind to the spirit, in ways you will feel long after the credits roll. There is a scene between Jane Adams and Larry Fessenden near the end of the film, that is in line to be one of the greatest scenes in any swanberg film. Worth every penny.


From the cinematography to the superb script & acting this will be the one film that sets the motion for others to follow....thank you Jane Adams.


My idea of perfect acting is when you can’t tell for even one second that an actor is acting. Know what I mean? Well, this is that kind of movie. Jane Adams’s performance is one of the best things I’ve ever seen on-screen. A gorgeous movie that makes no judgements about people, and gives no answers about life, but does bring up a lot of questions that’re worth asking.
