    David Rooney of The Hollywood Reporter called it "a quietly affecting indie drama likely to win admirers." Indiewire's Rodrigo Perez commented that "Edmands resists all levels of melodrama and sentimentality in Bluebird and yet the picture is just as arresting and emotional as any drama [he's] seen this year, albeit in a quiet manner." Francisco Salazar, writing in Latinos Post, says that "the film's tonal congruity and top-notch performances will surely resonate." Film School Rejects's Kate Erbland mentions that "[c]omparisons to Atom Egoyan's The Sweet Hereafter will likely plague Lance Edmands' Bluebird, thanks to the films' similar subject matter", but comments that "what's most remarkable about Bluebird is its consistently solid performances, many of which frequently approach just flat-out greatness." The New York Times' Stephen Holden, on the other hand, says it "tries a little too hard for atmosphere" but praises Morton's "quietly extraordinary portrayal". Variety's Peter Debruge calls it "a mournful throwback to more poetically inclined times", but says that "Edmands maintains too measured a pace as he cycles through the various lives affected".
