Movie Info

In tiny Colewell, Pennsylvania, the residents gather at the post office for mail and gossip, while the days pass quiet and serene. That is until news comes that the office is to close, and beloved clerk Nora (a marvelous Karen Allen) is left to fight for her job and reflect on the choices she has made that kept her in Colewell for so many years. Touching, with a hint of melancholy, Tom Quinn's eloquent film is an ode to small-town life and the quiet emotions that come with nostalgia and memories of the past. Infusing Nora with integrity and grace, Allen captures the intimate and often private struggle that occurs later in life, when unexpected changes occur. Heartened by a great supporting cast including Hannah Gross and Kevin J. O'Connor, Colewell gorgeously captures rural America, while giving space to the beauty of time passing and reflecting on what determines a life well lived.

  • Occasionally a tad too reflective, Quinn's pacing and controlled conflict requires an adjustment for viewers, but as "Colewell" sinks in, it reveals itself as the cinematic equivalent of a deep exhale after having attained peace within.

  • The film's finely crafted serenity is in keeping with its main character's secluded state of affairs, and mind.

  • Although Colewell could have benefited from pruning away some of its eccentricities, it pays eloquent tribute to a woman who fights against a life erased.

  • Colewell is a movie about reflection and our value to the work and ourselves as we get older. I found it deeply, profoundly and unexpectedly moving.

    Dec 12, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • An elegy to age, rural post-offices and community

    Dec 12, 2019 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Colewell desires merely to be good and to convey an innately relatable story, and by its own criteria, it is flawless.
