I can't recommend this film enough
This film is seriously underappreciated. It has something everyone can relate to,holding a mirror to the harsh reality we all face in our lives. Marital issuses, parenting, or the aging of those closest to us no one will finish the film with dry eyes. Despite the seemingly grim tone of the film, it is anything but! Elizabeth Chomko, first time writer and director, places comedy with an expert touch into the darkest parts of the plot allowing you a laugh through the tears. The perfect balance between humor and drama makes the film feel so realistic you'll think the dynamic family is your own. With such a star studded cast and multiple festival nominations, its almost immpossible to believe this is Chomko's debut film. Regardless, this film will stick with you and leave you itching for the next of Chomko's astounding writing/directoral masterpeices.
