Krisha300This family drama—alternately hilarious and appalling—centers on Krisha, who has arrived in Texas for Thankgiving. 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 director’s 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 that’s an expressionistic tour de force. 2015, USA, 83 minutes, rated R

“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 Fairchild’s mesmerizing turn.” – Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times

“This haunting drama finds new and explosive life in a familiar premise—a black sheep’s return to the family fold for Thanksgiving dinner. . . . Mr. Shults’s first film is spectacular.” – Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
