Critic Reviews of "Tumbledown"
Rolling StoneFebruary 12, 2016
First-time director Sean Mewshaw and screenwriter Desi Van Til - they're married - have decided, intriguingly, to craft a movie about loss and letting go. And they've done so with uncommon humor and heart.
Philadelphia InquirerFebruary 12, 2016
Tumbledown comes up light in the categories that matter most, miring a capable cast in a forced cable-knit folksiness familiar to anyone who has ever watched anything set in New England.
Entertainment WeeklyFebruary 09, 2016
Tumbledown is a sweetly poignant look at what it means to move on.

Hall and Sudeikis circle around one another warily, erupting into defensiveness, shutting each other out, then letting each other back in. There's a rhythm to it. Mewshaw helps sustain that rhythm.
New York TimesFebruary 05, 2016
We're meant to warm to Hannah and Andrew as they wear each other down with good-natured ribbing. But Ms. Hall and Mr. Sudeikis hardly warm up themselves, showing little chemistry and looking unsure how to play the film's tone, or the would-be zingers.
Los Angeles TimesFebruary 04, 2016
"Tumbledown" sees its good intentions undermined by cloying sitcom conventions.
El Mundo (Spain)January 06, 2017
A romantic comedy with certain drama touches, where everything that happens is perfectly predictable from the first minutes. [Full review in Spanish]
El Pais (Spain)January 03, 2017
A romantic tragicomedy that debates between the ironic dialogue and the reflection on the legacy and the ways to look for the happiness in an ideal Arcadia. [Full review in Spanish]
Brooklyn MagazineNovember 29, 2016
Despite its earnest charms, Tumbledown is the type of movie that explores its themes and touchstones so insistently that you start to hunger for any alternative to acoustic guitars or overcoming grief.
Epoch TimesJune 08, 2016
'Tumbledown' is not-quite-a-humdinger about a dead folk singer, featuring funnyman Jason Sudeikis as a surprisingly effective romantic lead, and as such-it's right nice.
The Young FolksFebruary 20, 2016
A film that survives by its atmosphere, Tumbledown finds itself floundering at moments that are more plot oriented.
The Film StageFebruary 19, 2016
As a study of grief, it's moving, featuring authentic performances and a keen understanding of the receding hibernation that comes with losing a cornerstone person in one's life.
