I know there's a lot of diss from other reviewers. Nobody seem to like the script, the actors, or the humour. I can understand that there are some uneasy moments and scenarios or jokes that are cringe-worthy and kinda offensive. But isnt real life the same? There's no censorship. No rules. No mannerisms. Just plain, ugly truth to life. This is it! So that's why I found myself enjoying this movie. The movie follows the downward spiral of Kate Stone who focuses only on herself and doesnt even do a great job of it. She gets to look after her awkard, cannot-fit-in-society type of niece for a short few days but through trial and errors, she soon realizes that she cares for things which she once despised (ie. family, coworkers, life in general). It's a story of redemption and triumph!
Some laughs here, as well as some rough spots, in this quirky and predictable comedy starring Taylor Schilling. She is excellent in her portrayal of Kate, a completely self-absorbed workaholic, employed as a Senior V.P. for a New Jersey hedge fund. Kate is asked by her brother to watch over her 11-year-old niece Maddie (Bryn Vale) for one night while they place his mother-in-law in hospice care. Of course, I don't have to tell you things will not go according to plan and they'll be plenty of misadventures and lessons to be learned along the way. In addition to Vale's fine performance, Kate McKinnon and Brian Tyree Henry add well to the mix here in supporting roles. All in all, I did get some laughs at times, and I would say this movie was a decent feature debut for writer and director Laura Steinel.
I saw this movie yesterday and it was just really well written. A complete breath of fresh air to the movie industry that we have become accustomed to. Dialogue and genuine care for the characters makes the experience so enjoyable. I hope to see more movies like this in the future.
Great movie. Extremely well acted and well thought out. A touching story with wit and a clever writing delivered by an incredible cast.
In a typical Hollywood film, the protagonist has to be likeable. If she's a career woman, more often than not she's also obsessed with finding a man. "Family" throws those and other familiar tropes out of window. Another is the too-cute-for-own-good sidekick or child, who shows the protagonist how to be a better person. Kate (Taylor Schilling) is a mean and self-absorbed executive when she is forced to take care of her awkward neice Maddie (Bryn Vale), who'd rather be doing roundhouse karate kicks than pirouettes in ballet class. Sure, the two learn from each other, but not necessarily in ways that typical movie audiences would expect. Depending on your sensibility, this could be either refreshing or infuriating, but never boring. The cast of mostly fresh faces keep things moving along. For those looking for a comedy with more of an edge than the typical film showing at the multplex, "Family" is definitely worth a look.
