"A STUNNER!  Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

Editor's Note
Actress Vera Farmiga makes her feature directorial debut with this adaptation of Carolyn S. Briggs' autobiography, THIS DARK WORLD: A MEMOIR OF SALVATION FOUND AND LOST. Haunted by a low sense of self-worth ever since her childhood in the 1960s, Corrine finds her happy family falling apart by the time she reaches high school, and seeks comfort in the arms of talented young guitarist Ethan. Later compelled to join a tight-knit fundamentalist community that offers both security and spiritual nourishment, Corrine and Ethan discover a sense of peace that ultimately proves short-lived once the more conservative tenets of the congregation start to take priority. Her illusions of the ideal faith-based community shattered, Corrine begins to question her entire belief system as her life starts to unravel once again. Joshua Leonard and John Hawkes co-star.

Professional Reviews

Los Angeles Times
"The same intelligence, wit and mature spirit that actress Vera Farmiga brings to her performances is richly apparent in her directorial debut as well, the inquisitive spiritual drama HIGHER GROUND." 08/26/2011

USA Today
"As a director, Farmiga avoids stereotypical portrayals and preachiness in this deeply felt narrative of a rural New York religious community." 08/26/2011

New York Times
"There is something remarkable -- you might even say miraculous -- about the way HIGHER GROUND makes it gentle, thoughtful way across the burned-over terrain of the American culture wars." 08/26/2011

"Farmiga closes in on moments that express mood and character so lightly and perceptively that you don't notice them..." 08/25/2011

Chicago Sun-Times
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Vera Farmiga's HIGHER GROUND is the life story of a woman who grows into, and out of, Christianity." 08/31/2011

Rolling Stone
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Farmiga crafts an honest portrait of spirituality in flux that most filmmaker shy away from....She lights up HIGHER GROUND and makes it funny touching vital." 09/15/2011

Entertainment Weekly
"HIGHER GROUND breaks crucial, sacred ground in American moviemaking." -- Grade: B 09/02/2011

NPR 9 of 10
What follows is something rarely seen in American movies: a sincerely humane examination of what it means to experience a crisis of faith. Tender, bittersweet and often gently comedic, Corinne's 20-year journey toward (and around, and away from) her God has a loose, searching rhythm that's engrossingly unpredictable. - Jeannette Catsoulis
