Light from Light (2019)



Critic Consensus: A paranormally tinged drama with a deceptively gentle touch, Light from Light sinks its hooks into the audience gradually but isn't quick to let go.

Movie Info

Gifted with sometimes-prophetic dreams and a lifelong interest in the paranormal, Shelia (Marin Ireland) is asked to investigate a potential haunting at a Tennessee farmhouse. It's there she meets Richard (Jim Gaffigan), a recent widower who believes his wife may still be with him. The investigation that ensues -- which eventually pulls in Shelia's son, Owen and his classmate Lucy -- forces them to confront the mysteries of their own lives.

[Light From Light] knows that the most resonant movie isn't a creed, but a question.

Nothing ever happens of any importance in Light From Light and nothing makes any sense, including the title.

Top Critic

Light From Light concerns ghost hunting, but Harrill characterizes the process in practical, mundane terms; it's the emotional implications of the endeavor that interest him.

November 3, 2019 | Rating: B | Full Review…

For a movie about grief, it's surprisingly even-handed, not too melancholic, heavy or existential but mostly pensive.

November 1, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Sure, Sheila has some "ghosts," and her large eyes carry the weariness of her past, but don't worry about getting struck with that metaphor: Harrill is a far more skilled and subtle director than that.

A movie this modest requires patience and generosity and a rejection of expectations...But it is a gem likely to stay with anyone smart enough to seek it out.
