Storyline

A Thanksgiving get-together for the eccentric Turner clan goes from bad to worse when estranged daughter Nina makes a surprise visit home for the first time in 15 years. Nina clashes with her stepmother Deborah, and sister, Lindsay, while half-brother Jacob tries to keep a massive gambling debt a secret. Meanwhile, family patriarch Poppy has his own dramatic news to share. "Cold Turkey" is a black comedy about how - despite our best efforts - we all eventually turn into our parents. Starring Alicia Witt ("Friday Night Lights"), Cheryl Hines ("Curb Your Enthusiasm"), Sonya Walger ("Lost"), Victoria Tennant ("L.A. Story") and acclaimed writer-director Peter Bogdanovich ("The Last Picture Show"). Written by Anonymous

A richly done dramadie !!
16 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The is an excellent look into what 'family' can be and so often is! Each child and parent must live behind their facade of likable pleasantness or just spill the facts and suffer the reactions.

Each actor gives a stellar performance as their character and interactions with their siblings and other family members. Poppy - Bogdanovich - is the only member the viewer can clearly understand. All the others are mysterious before tossing their 'skeletons in a closet' to Poppy.

From the beginning we can clearly see that Poppy is a broken and troubled man, but he keeps his misery to himself hiding behind his never ending glass of white wine and ice. While the others continue to present their facade, Poppy knows all.

Then at the Thanksgiving table a sister Nina spills everything and all hell springs loose. The next day everyone resolves they are all in the same boat and this rather fractured family endures.

This is a delightful flick!
