Jennifer Harlow’s The Sideways Light has been receiving positive reviews following its world premiere at the Austin Film Festival. Don Simpson at Smells Like Screen Spirit says the film expresses “an exuberant amount of directorial patience in the methodical pacing… a meticulous exercise in mood and tone,” Cinemen calls it “a refreshing take on a ghost story,” The Austin Chronicle states “Harlow is trying for new territory here… Cinematic depictions of senility often come across as demeaning, comedic shtick… Instead, Jefferies’ battles with the invisible, whether real or imagined, are truly heartrending.”
The film screens again this Thursday at the Lone Star International Film Festival in Fort Worth.
