    "SWEET LAND is a movie of extraordinary tenderness, in which Reaser and Guinee, using a language of looks, make you happy to think about what love once might have been. -- Grade: A
    Entertainment Weekly

    "[With a] guileless, heartfelt style....SWEET LAND celebrates a gutsy, old-fashioned sort of love, one born of backbreaking work and shared difficulties."
    New York Times

    "[S]exy and insightful about physical desire....[The film] will please moviegoers yearning for well told, wholesome but not necessarily prudish fare."
    Box Office

    Included in Entertainment Weekly's "Top 10 Films Of The Year" -- "[T]ouching chords of collective memory about love, ancestry, and the American immigrant dream."
    Entertainment Weekly

    3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[T]his labor of love seems influenced by Terence Malick's DAYS OF HEAVEN in all the right ways."
    New York Times

    3 stars out of 5 -- "Understated is an understatement in director Ali Selim's debut....This period dream of austere farm life is just sweet enough."
