Reviews:

A moving but unsentimental WWII exodus story… AARP Movies for Grownups

In this bright, engaging film, Kerr’s story is faithfully and lovingly preserved, though its tougher, quirkier details are mollified by a layer of palatable movie gloss. Variety

Link brings handsome period production values and a lyrical, restrained sensibility to a narrative that might not qualify as riveting, but exerts its own unmistakable emotional pull. Washington Post

A handsomely produced but modest effort that addresses important historical subjects sensitively but truthfully. San Jose Mercury News
