Did You Know?


Krisha is seen with a missing portion of her finger, which is never explained throughout the film; in real life actress Krisha Fairchild lost the tip of her index finger while trying to break up a dogfight shortly before the start of filming. She wanted to back out of the film because of the injury but eventually agreed to stay on. See more »

Well Done
20 January 2018 | by lorireesSee all my reviews

Well done effort and movie for small independent film. I saw this several months ago. Krisha has demons and a destructive past and has wreaked havoc on her family's emotional reserves for years. Krisha shows up to a holiday dinner expecting all to be well but the family has resentments and pain and cannot forget and forgive so easily. This film can be uncomfortable. This family is on the edge. The tension is palpable.

Overall great film that depicts the addict/emotionally needy and dysfunctional family well.
