Metacritic Score

  • 80

    The New York Times Stephen Holden

    Mr. Strathairn's complex, exquisitely nuanced portrayal of a man who goes over the line allows his character to be both hero and villain, sometimes at once.

  • 80

    Los Angeles Times Kenneth Turan

    Even with its drawbacks, Blue Car remains an intimate, thoughtful drama, with a performance no one is likely to forget.

  • 80

    Variety David Rooney

    This melancholy, insightfully scripted coming-of-age drama is moving without being manipulative and makes an assured calling card for writer-director Karen Moncrieff.
