Editorial Reviews

After being jilted by her fiancé, Margaret manages her loneliness by obsessively and compulsively organizing her already perfect home. When her older sister, Josephine, and ten-year-old niece, Hannah, arrive unexpectedly for an indefinite visit, Margaret s carefully structured life is thrown into disarray. Weighed down by guilt for abandoning her sister after their parents death, Josephine does her best to reconnect with Margaret by including her in fun family activities with Hannah. Initially resistant, Margaret slowly opens herself to the mess of family emotions while learning that the bonds of sisterhood can be reestablished with time. But just as Margaret begins to embrace her family, she discovers the truth behind Josephine s visit.

Very beautiful film.

It left me feeling like I wanted to see more of these characters, yet I was happy I "met" them.

Emily Blunt over at BluntReview(dot)com says: What a glorious film. And, it's chickbabe driven behind and in front of the lens. Send the boys out. This one is for the ladies. Nothing will blow up and there's a lot of feeling here. 'Nough said?

Story goes...Margaret (Caroline Fogarty) has just gone through a bad break up. She is not coping so well. But her feelings are manifesting themselves in a nasty outbreak of OCD; she's in dire need of intense order from her immediate surroundings.

Hold on to that image... because in swings her older sister and niece, Josephine and Hannah (Bonnie McNeil and Laurel Porter) for an unannounced visit. And the duo is far from orderly. They are flamboyant, giddy, charming and boiling over with love and life. And, in a very real way, just what Margaret needed and dreads most.

As the audience, you know something is up, but can't quite foretell the story's end. Brilliant. When was the last time you did not see a film's direction ten minutes in? As High as the Sky draws you in and gets very emotionally intimate.

The characters are delightful, the performances each a caliber not seen very often in "lower budget" films. And when you watch the extras, which you must, you discover 17 days and capelinni noodle-like budgets can still a masterpiece make. That is because these gals - all the leads are women - are exquisite. Laurel Porter is going to break your heart, and both Fogarty and McNeill will be etched into your spirit; they are so real.

Writer director Nikki Braendlin has really created an emotional powerhouse of a story and managed to place it (gorgeously) within the confines of a beautiful set/home. And this lady has built up an arsenal of talents tinkling behind the words.

AS HIGH AS THE SKY is just that. Tightly written, brilliant performances and well executed. A woman’s well-organized and regimented life is shattered when her carefree and happy go lucky sister and her daughters drop in unexpectedly. Here’s a family drama that dares to give us some of the universal complexities of real life in an unapologetic way that is clear and realistic.
Nikki Braendlin writing gave us a brief and endearing peek behind the curtain of a person afflicted with obsessive-compulsive disorder. Caroline Forgarty shed her usual comedic actor persona and took on the dramatic role of Margaret with a no holds barred and head on performance. Bonnie McNeil nails it as Josephine, the not so neat as a pin sister. Laurel Porter’s performance as Hannah, the precocious daughter of Josephine is priceless.
Well worth seeing it, I bought the DVD as a gift to my wife and I am happy to have seen it.

I absolutely loved this movie. The characters are all so well rounded and unique. I felt like the actors were all such naturals, there was no "acting" involved, and they simply became their characters. You feel as if you're just a fly on the wall who gets to see intimate moments of their lives. The storyline is seamless and the movie just flows, due in large part to the writing and witty dialogue that is both funny and touching. It left me feeling like I wanted to see more of these characters, yet I was happy I "met" them.

This film got under my skin and soon after began to haunt me.
It intrigued me from the very start with the obsessive compulsive clean and neat eccentric Margaret who's recently lost her boyfriend. New layers of mystery came when she got an unannounced visit from her older sister Josephine and niece Hannah. Two very compelling characters: Josephine is seemingly more down-to-earth while Hannah has maturity beyond her years and a childish exuberance and love for life. The film's humor comes in unexpected places and likewise the moments of sheer sadness.
The most unexpected fact: "As High As The Sky" is a first-time writing/directing effort by former actress Nikki Braendlin.
Excellent choice for character film lovers!

Really nicely written and beautifully shot. This is a quirky little character piece; funny and emotional. I've seen it many times at film festivals (where it received a number of audience awards). Each time I see it, I notice something new and learn a little bit more about the characters. It touches on the complexities of single-motherhood as well as the relationship between siblings.

I loved this beautifully shot story about love and family. When I found out the crew as well as cast was mostly women, I loved it even more.

Nikki Braendlin both wrote and directed this impressive piece (which has won many audience awards on the film festival circuit). It's hard to believe this is Braendlin's first effort, and I look forward to more from her.

I'd seen Caroline Fogarty on stage in comedic roles, and was already a fan. She didn't disappoint in this drama with her nuanced and affecting portrayal of a woman finding her heart again after loss.

The relationship between Bonnie McNeil and Laurel Porter as mother and daughter was beautiful as both actors delivered powerful performances.

The house in which the story unfolds became a character itself, and the cinematography is stunning.

I highly recommend As High as the Sky.
