Film Comment - 09/01/2008
"MOVING MIDWAY ultimately takes on an optimistic momentum....Cheshire demonstrates how much about race and the South remains sadly foreign to the big screen."
New York Times - 09/12/2008
"Partly a family memoir, partly a historical essay and partly the record of an improbable feat of engineering....[MOVING MIDWAY] tells a fascinating and complicated story of regional identity
Entertainment Weekly - 09/19/2008
"With his deep cinematic knowledge and vivid visual references, Cheshire analyzes the romantic notion of 'the plantation' and offers a compassionate meditation on Southern race relations."
Los Angeles Times - 10/17/2008
"MOVING MIDWAY and its house-relocating metaphor plays its own quirky yet thoughtful part in the question of how much the South has truly moved."
When Godfrey Cheshire's cousin decides to move the family's ancestral home, a beautiful North Carolina plantation, it prompts him to explore the meaning of the house and the secrets of his family's bloodline. Laced with a good dose of Southern Gothic, this documentary follows Cheshire (a film critic) as he meets the African-American limbs of his family tree and confronts the continuing burden of slavery.
