Washington Post: Watch “ALL THE LIGHT IN THE SKY” online

From today’s Washington Post:

“ALL THE LIGHT IN THE SKY” becomes a funny, touching and intimate meditation on aging and acceptance — the perfect at-home bookend to Richard Linklater’s “Boyhood,” which is in theaters.

Appropriately enough for Swanberg, who has carved out an impressive career in the super-independent space of micro-budget film, “ALL THE LIGHT IN THE SKY” is also about how to keep oneself sustainable within a constantly changing and often cruel media landscape.

Put another way, Swanberg is addressing how we live and love within our means — environmental, emotional and biological. “ALL THE LIGHT IN THE SKY” poses deep questions with the lightest of touches (the funniest of which is co-star Larry Fessenden’s impromptu Jack Nicholson impersonation).

New York Times Review: ALL THE LIGHT IN THE SKY

From Stephen Holden at the New York Times:

“The cosmic and the microscopic are casually — and delicately — juxtaposed in “All the Light in the Sky,” an evocative, slightly melancholic movie directed and photographed by the prolific mumblecore auteur Joe Swanberg. This portrait of a middle-aged actress in Los Angeles who makes a decent living as a Hollywood bit player but worries about the future, is bolstered by the astoundingly natural performance of Jane Adams (“Happiness,” “Hung”)…What plot there is revolves around a visit by Marie’s 25-year-old niece, Faye (Sophia Takal), an aspiring actress. The two women compare the difference between breasts at 45 and 25, and you feel Marie’s resignation to her decline with the passing of time. There is a party where Faye overindulges and Marie and her friend Rusty (Larry Fessenden) have a conversation in which he does spot-on Jack Nicholson imitations…Without preaching, “All the Light in the Sky” poses questions that are worth asking, even if we know the answers. Why do people build houses that they know will eventually be swallowed by the sea? How do we keep up our spirits with the realization that no matter what we do, there is no turning back the clock? Is it possible to deal with the future when it’s all you can do to savor the beauty of the moment?”
