    • Tasha Robinson

      At times, Higher Ground feels like a lower stakes Welcome To The Dollhouse for adults: Its a systematically built portrait of disappointment and despair, centering on a perpetual underdog looking for affection and surety in any possible form. ( Read More )
    • Roger Ebert

      Sometimes it slips too easily into satire, but at least its nuanced satire based on true believers who are basically nice and good people.There are no heavy handed portraits of holy rollers here, just people whose view of the world is narrow. ( Read More )
    • S. Jhoanna Robledo

      HIGHER GROUND often takes the titular higher ground, and the movie is the better for it. ( Read More )
    • Anthony Kaufman

      While such sequences might offend the most extreme of evangelical audiences, Farmigas own generous spirit shines through. ( Read More )
    • Bill Weber

      Bereft of both spiritual and narrative spark, the loss of faith drama Higher Ground gets stuck in the valley of the shadow of snark. ( Read More )
