Olesya Rulin steals the show
30 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

Family Weekend is a a really fun family comedy with heart. The movie features surprisingly good acting all around, but Olesya Rulin steals the show!

The movie centers on a high school speed jumper who's dysfunctional family lets her down, and her desperate attempt to write the ship before it's too late. Kristin Chenoweth and Matthew Modine are fantastically convincing on the dysfunctional side, and Joey King's performance is both skin-crawlingly creep and endearing and truly unexpected from such a young star.

Regarding Rulin's, her performance is spot on, and he portrays both her strong competitive side and vulnerable side flawlessly. She engages and keeps the audience's attention, and though her character is weird and quirky, we all want her to succeed. To quote Kelly Golighty "She reminds me of Audrey Hepburn in My Fair Lady with a dash of Lucille Ball thrown in for good measure."
