      Peyton Robinson RogerEbert.com Creatively unremarkable, with uninspired visuals and editing that play like a workshop in flashbacks and cool-versus-warm emotional motifs. Rated: 1.5/4 Apr 5, 2024 Full Review Michael Talbot-Haynes Film Threat While it has some major foundation flaws that go back to the source material, A Bit Of Light still remains heavy enough to leave a lasting impression. Rated: 7.5/10 Apr 9, 2024 Full Review Kat Halstead Common Sense Media It's heart-wrenching to see Ella's struggles to stay sober and find hope, but Winstone's turn as her patient, frustrated, but ultimately loving father injects much-needed warmth into her journey. Apr 8, 2024 Full Review Anne Brodie What She Said The final chapter breaks everything open like a kick in the emotional stomach, and suggests something outside themselves. Wow. Rated: 3/4 Apr 5, 2024 Full Review Mark Dujsik Mark Reviews Movies The script here, based on the writer's play, has a notable outlier among its cast... Rated: 2.5/4 Apr 5, 2024 Full Review Robert Kojder Flickering Myth A Bit of Light is, ultimately, too exaggerated and phony to work as intended Rated: 2.5/5 Apr 4, 2024 Full Review Read all reviews
