Land Ho! is now playing in select theaters, and opens in more on Friday.
Here's what the critics are saying:
"[Land Ho!] is one of the best, happiest movies of the year. You’ll exit better than high. You’ll leave on a trampoline."--Wesley Morris, Grantland
"3.5/4 stars...truly disarming...resonates with clarity that stays with you."--Glenn Kenny, RogerEbert.com
"'Land Ho!' is full of surprises, rich in the way it noses around the rocky terrain of aging in an indifferent world through the engaging performances of its two stars. "--Betsy Sharkey, L.A. Times
"Critic's pick....a delightful tale."--Manhola Dargis, The New York Times
"4/5 stars...both actors [Earl Lynn Nelson and Paul Eenhoorn] are superb."--Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
"3.5/4 stars...Katz and Stephens consistently catch the nuances of character that bind the two men to each other, rather than simply tracing the pros and cons of their dispositions, is what gives the film its melancholic yet vibrant resonance."--Chris Cabin, Slant Magazine
