Scott has the courage to let the imaginative story unfold at its own leisurely pace, and it's not surprising that the acting is excellent, considering that he's among the very best American screen actors.

L.A. Weekly
A small masterpiece of tone and form.

Chicago Tribune
One of those sweet, intelligent, nicely made films.
80
Washington Post
There's a collective scintillation about its rich, distinctive characters, narrative serendipity and ineffable magic.
75
The funny and heartbreaking Off the Map, directed with a poet's eye and a keen ear for nuance by Campbell Scott, resonates with something rare in today's movies: simplicity.
70
Chicago Reader
The plot is minimal, but the film is essentially an acting showcase. Allen is excellent.
70
Film Threat
Any minor flaws Off the Map has are easily forgiven by great acting and beautifully shot landscapes. Campbell Scott does a great job of adapting a stage play (by screenwriter Joan Ackerman) to film as well.
70
The A.V. Club
Off The Map feels peculiar and remote, strangled by an air of arty disengagement. The most vivid characters are the earth and the sky, and they both give stellar performances.
70
Campbell Scott's latest foray behind the camera most excels as a subtly observed study of how the dynamics within a close-knit family can shift over time.
30
Village Voice
Were it not so soporific, Off the Map could easily drive you off your nut.
