The Telegraph - Tim Robey
Causeway is an excellent, moving, determinedly low-key slice of US indie cinema.

Entertainment Weekly - Leah Greenblatt
It's nice to see actors like these do such subtle, sympathetic work for a gifted young director — and to find an outlet for storytelling that doesn't demand neat redemption, but still allows for grace.
75
The Playlist - Charles Bramesco
The double character piece excels most when Neugebauer does her thing and facilitates her actors. Together, they build a pair of utterly real people, nonetheless confined to a dramatic universe more prone to contrivance. But the pleasures of the former generally outweigh the irksomeness of the latter, with Lawrence and costar Brian Tyree Henry joined in as a super-generator of onscreen magnetism.

Collider - Ross Bonaime
Like the relationship between Lynsey and James, Causeway is a film that slowly grows on you, a film that puts on a tough front—with its devastated characters and desire for escape—yet at its center is a tremendous about of heart, love, with its found families and shared pain.

The Hollywood Reporter - David Rooney
It’s a small-scale film that many might call unambitious, favoring delicate observation over big emotional payoff.
