Did You Know?


Billie Fairchild, who plays Grandma in the film, is actually suffering from Alzheimer's Disease, so she was not entirely aware she was acting in a film, although director Trey Shults said she had a wonderful time at the "Thanksgiving". See more »

Unsettling and brutal, but essential
19 August 2016 | by Red_IdentitySee all my reviews

I don't know where that "comedy" label on IMDb comes from. I don't think it functions even as a black comedy. Absolutely heavy and quite dark, but fabulously written, directed, and acted. There are many films that deal with this sort of premise (even Rachel Getting Married comes to mind) but this really took it to another level. Completely immersive, watching it all unravel just hurts to watch. Not an easy viewing by any means and definitely one that will divide audiences completely (even on this board, I can see many people hating it). I loved it though, easily one of the best of the year so far. Krisha Fairchild should absolutely be in contention for end-of-the- year awards, and Trey Edward Shults shows a lot of talent.
