Directed by Trey Edward Shults
With Krisha Fairchild, Olivia Grace Applegate, Bryan Casserly
2015, USA, 83 minutes, rated R
This family drama, alternately hilarious and appalling, centers on Krisha, who has arrived in Texas for Thanksgiving. The house becomes the site of her undoing, as she furtively swallows pills and contends with the yelling, yammering relations who swarm through the McMansion. The directors impressive conceit is not only that he cast himself, his mother and his grandmother in crucial roles but also that Krisha, in the lead role, is played by his aunt. This shared history results in a movie thats an expressionistic tour de force.
"The fertility of Shults image-making and storytelling skills is almost breathtaking, and much of Krisha draws on the subconscious power of his direction in tandem with Krisha Fairchilds mesmerizing turn." Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"Mr. Shults's first film is spectacular." Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
