All the Light in the Sky is quiet: subtle. I'm tempted to say that this is a film for women, but that seems outrageously unfair. It's definitely not a chick flick. It just, captures women well. It captures aging well. It captures the reality that we're all doing the best we can, and we all kind of want to be better, but even more, we all just want to be comfortable. We want to be attractive and strong and interesting. But we also want a really normal place to just be. We want someone to like us, even love us, when we're groomed, and when we're not. Jane Adams is perfect in this. It takes place in Malibu, which makes everything seem calm and beautiful. It makes all the light worth noticing.
