      David Jenkins Little White Lies Cannot wait to see what Guthrie does next, or whether she'll find a story as rich as this one. Rated: 4/5 Nov 9, 2015 Full Review Mark Kermode Observer (UK) It's oddly intimate fare, at times a touch too inward looking ... but honest and heartfelt throughout, driven by an unfashionable desire to heal, rather than merely reopen, old wounds. Rated: 3/5 Nov 8, 2015 Full Review Kate Muir Times (UK) In the adroitly observed The Closer We Get, a family crisis turns into an autobiographical detective story when the film director Karen Guthrie returns home to care for her mother in the seaside town of Largs in North Ayrshire. Rated: 4/5 Nov 5, 2015 Full Review Katie Smith-Wong Flick Feast The Closer We Get is sensitive filmmaking, with Guthrie's careful direction and emotional narrative pulling the heartstrings without too much drama. Rated: 3/5 Nov 19, 2019 Full Review Matthew Anderson CineVue A poignant, unerring and simultaneously heart-warming and heartbreaking portrait of dealing with the demons of an unspoken past. Rated: 4/5 Apr 8, 2019 Full Review Alison Rowat The Herald (Scotland) An honest, beautifully rendered and ultimately heart-breaking reminder that there is no such thing as an ordinary life. Rated: 4/5 Aug 23, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews
