Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Set in and around the dockyards of Glasgow, On a Clear Day follows a laid-off shipbuilder who decides to fix his life by swimming the English Channel.
Fresh: Sweet-natured, if somewhat familiar, On a Clear Day features fine performances by Mullan, Blethyn and Sives. Dellal and cinematographer David Johnson paint an inviting picture of Glasgow.
Fresh: A thoughtful, thoroughly engaging portrait of fractured family and friends pulling together for an impossible dream.
Rotten: Like a soggy and less compelling iteration of The Full Monty.

A story with heart...
I really love this movie. It has a lot of heart and is much better than a lot of the nonsense on TV and in the theaters nowadays. Great story, and very inspiring.
No theatrics, no special effects. Just a well produced, well written story about a man on a mission at an unexpected point in his life.
