Hearts and Bones (2019)




Critic Consensus: Hearts and Bones is more powerful in concept than execution, although strong work from a deftly assembled cast adds much-needed heft.

Movie Info

A war photographer has just returned home to prepare for his latest exhibition when a South Sudanese refugee appears at his door with a request -- that he not exhibit any photographs of the massacre in his village, taken 15 years earlier. What emerges is an unlikely friendship between the two men. While sifting through the photographer's archive, they make a startling discovery -- the refugee's daughter, thought dead, may still be alive. As more revelations arise, both men begin to question their past and in their search, they discover salvation.


Critic Reviews for Hearts and Bones

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (4)

It is a human-oriented drama that builds a thoughtful and contemplative space, empathising with characters grappling with difficult circumstances outside the common experience. It is also the kind of drama you sometimes want to grab and shake to life.

Hearts and Bones is a thoughtful and engaging story, driven by exceptional performances.

May 6, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The untangling of each man's past lets the film explore ideas about trust and blinkered assumptions, and Lawrence proves himself a very able director of actors.

The intuitive selection of the four leads, and their complex, perceptive playing of the material, is a credit to Lawrence's deft direction of both veteran and non-professional talent.
