As friendships and family merge, each member of the Framily comes to question what it is they want beyond the quick-fix.Written by
Saw the film at a screening in Karlstad (Sweden) a few days ago. The Director was there and encouraged people in the audience to vote/review the film here on IMDb, so here goes:
The film starts out on a light note as Ethan (Richard Gunn) invites some friends to come and live together in his recently inherited house outside San Francisco. But, once the friends move in, things get more complicated and the tone darkens. It becomes clear that some of the friends have baggage, with each other and within themselves.
The film is well acted (very well acted actually), well crafted and was on the whole a very pleasant surprise since I had not heard about this film before it popped up in the program sheet for the local art-house cinema "Arenan".
The only downside is that the main character Ethan (Richard Gunn) slips into the background a little bit in the last 20 minutes of the film. In the Q&A after the screening, the director admitted that there had been some changes made to the story in editing that might have affected this. However, this is a minor complaint.
In summary, a very well acted film and well worth the time and effort to go and see it.
