      Judy Berman TIME Magazine What it lacks, as a work of art (it would be grotesque to call it a work of entertainment), is the level of insight that might justify putting us through eight hours’ worth of human misery. Apr 4, 2024 Full Review Robert Lloyd Los Angeles Times Even the moderately well-informed viewer is bound to learn a few things, but "We Were the Lucky Ones" isn't a history lesson. It's a human story, of husbands and wives, parents and children, friends and lovers... Mar 28, 2024 Full Review Aramide Tinubu Variety Devastating, and profoundly moving, We Were the Lucky Ones illustrates the scope of World War II, the inhumanity of others and the anguish of disconnection and loss. Mar 28, 2024 Full Review Hannah Brown Jerusalem Post It is an epic historical drama, the kind they rarely make anymore, and it will keep you on the edge of your seat -- even if you’ve read the book -- as the family struggles for survival. Apr 4, 2024 Full Review Jackie K. Cooper Being based on a true family adds to the interest but the numerous story lines diffuse the dramatic effects. Rated: 6/10 Apr 2, 2024 Full Review Lauren Veneziani DC Film Girl A remarkable true story that reminds us the power of faith and the beauty of overcoming an impossible struggle, with an incredible performance by Joey King. Rated: 4/5 Apr 1, 2024 Full Review Read all reviews
