Lullaby

6/10
Drama
 

Estranged from his family, Jonathan (Hedlund) discovers his father has decided to take himself off life support in forty-eight hours’ time. During this intensely condensed period, a lifetime of drama plays out. Robert (Jenkins) fights a zero sum game to reclaim all that his illness stole from his family. A debate rages on patients’ rights and what it truly means to be free. Jonathan reconciles with his father, reconnects with his mother (Archer), sister (Brown-Findlay), and his love (Adams) and reclaims his voice through two unlikely catalysts – a young, wise-beyond-her-years patient (Barden) and a no-nonsense nurse (Hudson). Through this intensely life affirming prism, an unexpected and powerful journey of love, laughter, and forgiveness unfolds.

    While the performances are the key to the success of Lullaby, it is Levitas’ heartfelt and personal story (his inspiration for writing it came from his own family experience) that provides the necessary tools for these actors to work with.

    Despite the work of a first-rate cast, it doesn’t feel real to me.

    New York Observer Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    This terminal illness tale rises above the form, mainly thanks to a stellar cast and a refusal to drift into maudlin, a film that saves its big emotions for a wrenching finale that it earns.

    McClatchy-Tribune News Service Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    Writer/director Andrew Levitas needlessly pads this captivating theme with over-used tropes.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Nick Prigge

    Garrett Hedlund's performance throbs with an anguish that's far more honest than the sentimental euthanasia subplot at the center of the film.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Leah Greenblatt

    A raft of fine actors – including Amy Adams, Richard Jenkins, and Downton Abbey’s Jessica Brown Findlay – are wasted in a sour, callow family drama that mistakes constant yelling for emotional tension and fortune-cookie aphorisms for wisdom.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Betsy Sharkey

    Everything unfolds at a glacial place, with so many emotional beats overplayed that the experience is more wearing than moving.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Graham Fuller

    Sadly, Jennifer Hudson and Terrence Howard are wasted in tiny parts, as is Amy Adams as the lost love of the sulky rocker.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Ben Kenigsberg

    Much of the early action, with Jonathan telling off his father, feels awkwardly staged, even tortured, a quality exacerbated by Levitas’ weakness with dialogue.

    Variety Full Review
  • Sheri Linden

    This feature debut deals mainly in clichés, never transforming the tough question at its center into compelling cinema.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Christy Lemire

    It’s the circle of life. Someone should write a song about it. And wouldn’t you know? Jonathan does just that in one of the many endings Lullaby has to offer.

  • Jesse Hassenger

    Lullaby is a small movie, but it slows down enough to accommodate plenty of self-indulgence.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Stephen Holden

    Lullaby, the directorial debut of Andrew Levitas, a jack of all artistic trades, is the kind of manipulative, cliché-infested hokum that alienates moviegoers by its insistence on hogging all the tears.

    Rarely has the terminal seemed as interminable as it does in Lullaby.
