You just have to watch it.
★★★½ review by Chris Campbell on Letterboxd
A character study of a woman from France who travels through the western US as she figures out her life. Taking full advantage of the locations and cast filled with a range of indie cameos, it's a film that focusses on smaller moments between characters as they meet and share their lives with each other. Going in unexpected directions at times, it's a great showcase for Diane Kruger.
★★★½ review by Luke Pauli on Letterboxd
When Sky starts, there’s an element of familiarity to it: abused wife kills husband, goes on the run. I felt like I knew what was going to happen, I had already mapped out the rest of the film in my head, but to it’s credit, it didn’t go exactly down the route I had envisaged, and it has some surprises up it’s sleeve. Well acted from Diane Kruger, well shot; generally a pretty decent watch and better than I had anticipated.
★★★★ review by Ann Archer on Letterboxd
Diane Kruger and Norman Reedus shine in this surprisingly emotional and simple love story. Romy, a French woman on vacation in the Southwest with her abusive husband, decides to leave him and make a life for herself in America.
This film is raw and we feel connected to Romy on a personal level, on her quest to find direction in life. It carries vigor and passion for the desert and immerses us in a journey of self-discovery.
The almost reluctant and inevitable romance that springs between Romy and her Vegas fling feels honest and relatable. We end with a sense of completeness as Romy makes a life for herself on her own terms, and gets what she truly wants most out of life.

i cried a fair bit and i don't cry very often, amazing about the journey towards happiness, actually centred the female main character, repeating/interesting moments showing the cyclical nature of life, definitely so well done
