      Audience Member Really liked it. Not many good Jamaican movies and this is one of them Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member great movie, loved it spoke volumes! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie touches upon issues that are very common yet rarely spoken about! Home again is movie keeps you on the edge! Great writing, great acting and Lyriq is gorgeous. This movie helps you understand that there are different levels and emotions that these people go through! Finding your roots is hard enough- Can you imagine how mind blowing it is when you are forced to go back to a place that you don't know and start all over again?! Great story line! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Really strong performances from all of the cast, especially Lyiq Bent. The storyline was interesting, relevant to the current migration crisis and a fascinating portrayal of the Caribbean, a place that is too oft overlooked as a vacation destination/crime hotspot, at the expense of the stories and experiences of the people. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review dave j Wednesday, May 21, 2014 (2012) Home Again DRAMA Sensationalized dramatization regarding three departees blacklisted from Jamaica as a country. It first makes a footnote regarding the percentage of Jamaican immigrants immigrating to other first world countries before failing us to engage it like another "Crash" or "Babel" movie with multiple characters intertwining with one another. It basically showcases one character from each country, in this instance it's Canada, The United States and Great Britain solemnly reveals why these three in particularly, were deported back to Jamaica again and branded as criminals that can't be trusted, in which their lives don't get any easier. One of it's major problems is that the stories feel very imposed which shows us their lives without much thought since much of it almost seemed that their information about them can be collected by a newspaper or by on-line. 2 out of 4 stars Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member Utterly perplexed by this movie about Jamaican deportees who are sent to a land where half the actors do not have Jamaican accents and where soca music is played at a dancehall party. Totally missed the mark with the setting and this obscures whatever story they were trying to tell. I can't find a garbage can big enough to place this movie. If I owned this on DVD it would be a coaster. If I owned this on VHS this would be a paper weight. If I owned this on laserdisc I'd used it as a reflector in my backyard to attract pigeons. Nonsense and a waste of my life watching this. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Bruce DeMara Toronto Star All three actors acquit themselves well, particularly Bent as Dunston, a soulful man trying to leave his violent past behind. Rated: 3/4 Mar 22, 2013 Full Review Kate Taylor Globe and Mail Rather improbably, two of the three are handed happy endings so the requirements of drama do belatedly trump political lessons in Home Again. Rated: 2/4 Mar 22, 2013 Full Review Mae Abdulbaki Punch Drunk Critics Unfortunately, Sudz Sutherland's film ultimately fails in giving us a well-rounded and emotionally backed character story, but does a good job in introducing a topic that hasn't been given a lot of attention. Rated: 2.5/5 Aug 14, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews
