  • This is about as egregious as filmmaking gets. show more

  • [A] stunningly self-important but numbingly empty cocktail of romance and insulting refugee porn. show more

  • The film is mostly unmoving, neither the romance nor the social consciousness succeeding in stirring our emotions. Even worse, Penn lets the plight of displaced Africans slip into the background, resulting in yet another well-meaning film that wants to address planetary ills by concentrating our attention on the good-looking outsiders who come in to save the day. show more
