Storyline

In Chris Brown's latest, finely-crafted feature, Fanny, Annie & Danny are dysfunctional adult siblings brought together by their horrific mother for the Christmas holiday. Like just about everything in Brown's work, what seems commonplace on the surface becomes riveting in the details. As with a tsunami building strength silently offshore, we sense the impending climax without knowing exactly when it will hit - or how hard. Written by Anonymous

This is a movie you have to watch more than once. I've seen it six times and I feel like I'm still finding layers in these characters.

The acting is so strong and the direction so confident and self-assured that it all feels terribly real. While there are humorous moments (Todd in particular) be advised that this movie fearlessly explores difficult emotions, intractable family problems and disturbing human behavior. And because it's all so well done, these elements are uncomfortably relatable and familiar. Comparisons to Noah Baumbach are on point.

I'd also like to mention the amazing work of Anne Darragh. Although it's a small part, her pitch-perfect scene is representative of the excellence attained by the entire film. Highly recommended.
