THE WAY WE GET BY is a deeply moving film about life and how to live it. Beginning as a seemingly idiosyncratic story about troop greeters - a group of senior citizens who gather daily at a small airport to thank American soldiers departing and returning from Iraq, the film quickly turns into a moving, unsettling and compassionate story about aging, loneliness, war and mortality. Seeking out the telling detail rather than offering sweeping generalizations, the film carefully builds stories of heartbreak and redemption, reminding us how our culture casts our elders, and too often our soldiers, aside. More important, regardless of your politics, "The Way We Get By" celebrates three unsung heroes who share their love with strangers who need and deserve it.  
   
 

" ***** How many films are this effective, that with so few words the viewer can become heartbroken? Gaudet's film is a marvel of humanity, celebrating life through its little moments. I adored every frame of this movie and every person in it."
– David Cornelius, eFilmCritic.com

"Absolutely stunning. This one will leave you breathless."
– Mike Riggs, Washington City Paper

" ***** Hardened soldiers' eyes mist over at their reception in Bangor. Yours will too in this…simple moving documentary.” – Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel

"A story that is not just indescribably moving but is a timeless metaphor for our country. I absolutely loved it.” – Erik Childress, eFilmCritic.com
