Kate Stone (Taylor Schilling) is career-focused, and enjoys her life that way. Her brash attitude keeps relationships at arm's length, making her an outcast in her own right. When her estranged brother calls asking her to babysit her tween niece Maddie, Kate reluctantly agrees to help. But babysitting overnight unexpectedly turns into a week, and Kate's life spins into chaos. As Maddie reveals stories of being bullied and of wanting to run away and be a Juggalo, the two form a unique bond. In FAMILY, Schilling delivers a delightful and layered comedic performance. Laura Steinel's debut feature has heart, reminding us that family can be found in all different forms.
Doesn't anybody pay attention to the editing?? This light comedy could be a winner. The acting is comedic perfection. Unfortunately, it's out of sequence. I'm sure it's there in the rushes, but the editing is just off. It's like so many other films that are rushed to meet budget. Too bad... because the actors provide quality work. Good try.....once again.
