About the Movie

Pop culture scholar Andrew (Jason Sudeikis) comes to Maine to interview Hannah (Rebecca Hall), the protective widow of an acclaimed singer. When the unlikely pair strike a deal to co-write a biography, Andrew finds himself clashing with a cast of locals, including Hannah’s hunky suitor (Joe Manganiello), and her loving but defensive parents (Blythe Danner, Richard Masur). When Hannah and Andrew's stormy partnership blossoms into an unexpected connection, they face the possibility that the next chapter in their lives may involve each other. Dianna Aragon and Griffin Dunne costar in this startlingly funny and sweetly romantic tale of moving on and finding love in the unlikeliest of places.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: We're meant to warm to Hannah and Andrew as they wear each other down with good-natured ribbing. But Ms. Hall and Mr. Sudeikis hardly warm up themselves, showing little chemistry and looking unsure how to play the film's tone, or the would-be zingers. – Nicolas Rapold, New York Times, Feb 5, 2016

Fresh: Tumbledown is a sweetly poignant look at what it means to move on. – Devan Coggan, Entertainment Weekly, Feb 9, 2016

Fresh: First-time director Sean Mewshaw and screenwriter Desi Van Til - they're married - have decided, intriguingly, to craft a movie about loss and letting go. And they've done so with uncommon humor and heart. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Feb 12, 2016

Fresh: A young widow must decide if it's time to stop grieving in Tumbledown, a sweet and gently comic tale set in small-town Maine. – John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter, Dec 4, 2015

Sweetly Romantic Movie

Sure, there are a few ways you could pick this apart, but overall it’s a sweet, romantic film that was really enjoyable to watch. Sort of a Nicholas Sparks type feel but not a copy either. I bought it instead of rented it, and I’m glad I did. The music in this is just beautiful.

Great film

This is a sweet little indie film that has its heart in the right place. I found some parts of it a bit odd and awkward. Then I read the backstory and learned that this is a first time effort by a husband (director) and wife (writer) team who wanted to share their love of Maine and its people there through film. While it may not capture what small town New England is exactly, it does a pretty good job, and the odd/awkward parts may really be just the lovable quirkiness of small town lives and loves shining through. Great and warm supporting performances (Bythe Danner, Griffin Dunne and Richard Masur) offset the slightly wandering script and direction. A little bit of Northern Exposure, a little bit of When Harry Met Sally, and just a hint of indefinite sadness a la Sideways. You may find (as I did) that in different hands this material could have been done better, but there are some special and surprising moments. On the whole worth renting. Note that this is an R rated film for some pretty mild sex scenes and innuendo.

Very touching and beautifully done

This is a feel-good movie with an interesting plot, beautiful scenery, and just the right mix of wit, romance, and charm. Most anyone would enjoy this.
