A film about family, love, dysfunction and loyalty
13 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

This film follows the life of an American family whose members are going about their daily routines in pursuit of happiness and success. The story line resonated with me in that I was able to connect with each of the character's struggles, and relate to what families experience as they grow together. The film brilliantly displays a balance of emotion, drama and humor, with love and commitment serving as the glue to the family's desire to work through their turmoil.

The movie is hilarious, quirky, authentic and heart-warming! The music is perfectly suited to the era, the location and the family. You will ride the ups and downs with these lovable characters and leave the theater feeling warm, full of hope and ready for your own Thanksgiving celebration!

An absolute must see!
