Land Ho!

Buy Tickets

(2014) dir Aaron Katz, Martha Stephens w/Earl Lynn Nelson, Paul Eenhorn [95 min; DCP]
A pair of 60-something ex-brothers-in-law sets off on a road trip through Iceland, hoping to reclaim their youth. Their picaresque adventures, from trendy Reykjavík to rugged outback, are a throwback to classic bawdy road comedies as well as a candid exploration of aging, loneliness, and friendship.

★★★½ “A marvelous slice of lo-fi whimsy about two duffers, longtime acquaintances in the gray zone between middle age and old age, who up and travel from Kentucky to the Land of Fire and Ice.” – Ty Burr, Boston Globe

“Yes, this is yet another bromance, but for people who remember when that was just called friendship.” – Wesley Morris, Grantland

“Walks and talks like a hand-held indie, except that it keeps making these funny skips into horror comedy and the musical.” – Ella Taylor, NPR

“The choice of casting and the use of a handheld camera contributes to “humanizing” the film. I wish the filmmakers had committed to a pure documentary approach.” Bridget Foster Reed looks at LAND HO! for Brattle Film Notes. Read More
