Entertainment Weekly
Ulee's Gold is a story of redemption, and Nunez doesn't make redemption look any easier than it is.
90
Rolling Stone
Nunez finds a striking lyricism in simple lives that inspires an uncommonly fine cast and ranks him as a world-class filmmaker.
89
Austin Chronicle
Fonda brings all of his childhood frustration and angst to the screen in one of the year's most unexpectedly brilliant acting performances.
88
Chicago Sun-Times
Nunez has a gift for finding the essence, the soul, of his actors.
88
USA Today
An emotionally honest low-ebber that builds to a satisfying wrap-up.
88
ReelViews
The highest compliment I can offer Ulee's Gold is that it plays more like real life than a movie.
75
Nunez's style is quiet, simple and deliberate, but the film never drags.
75
The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
Peter Fonda's the bee's knees in the performance of his career.
60
The power of an otherwise carefully crafted film is undone by risky and not altogether successful casting.
50
Worthy but dull.
