Rex Reed Observer Year-end releases reveal a plethora of fine actors vainly trying to apply their extraordinary skills to raise the quality level of mediocre films. Jennifer Lawrence in Causeway is a perfect example. Rated: 2/4 Dec 6, 2022 Full Review Jenny Nulf Austin Chronicle Director Lila Neugebauer manages to keep the tone understated, focusing on the nuances of Lawrence and Henry’s performances that carry the weight of the heavy script. Rated: 3.5/5 Nov 15, 2022 Full Review John Wilmes Chicago Reader A dour, paint-by-numbers contemplation on trauma and dislocation unfolds, and we see two actors capable of tremendous expression stuck in a place that won’t allow it. Nov 11, 2022 Full Review Calum Cooper In Their Own League This is a story about the multi-dimensional forms trauma can come in, and how such feelings can shape our choices and personalities. Rated: 4/5 Jul 15, 2024 Full Review Jericho Tadeo MovieWeb Causeway is a sensitive character study, giving its actors some of the richest and most complex roles we've seen them play in a while. Jul 12, 2024 Full Review Bhuvanesh Chandar The Hindu Jennifer Lawrence and Brian Tyree Henry are at their restrained best in an emotional drama about a soldier healing from trauma, chasing belongingness and figuring out life in a world lonelier than a battlefield.

Joe W A well-acted human interest story. Not much drama. Worth watching if you like that kind of thing. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 07/08/24 Full Review Alec B Overall it's your fairly typical low key indie drama about starting over. However it's aided by solid performances, especially by Lawrence. It's good to see her going back to the kind of blue collar drama that put her on the map. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/26/24 Full Review liz R Understated but thoughtful perspective on trauma and friendship. Well worth your time. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 12/28/23 Full Review Green C A little slow but a poignant story of two people in pain and recovery, finding friendship. A little bit disappointed with the vague ending. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 12/19/23 Full Review ur a It's a mediocre movie, there is no new invention, the movie ends with a banal conversation. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 11/26/23 Full Review Leonardo A Esse filme começa ruim, mas no final dele;... a gente pensa que tá no começo! Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 11/02/23 Full Review Read all reviews
