AroView: A modern, fresh take on the thanksgiving drama in which director Stephen Karam adapts his own Tony award-winning play with cinematic flourishes.
Private resentments and passive aggressions bubble to the surface for a ‘haunted’ middle-class family, echoed in the creaking confines of an empty, decrepit New York apartment, which is about to become the residence of the young couple in the family. Richard Jenkins as the troubled patriarch and comedian Amy Schumer in a completely straight role are just two of the half-dozen performances to relish.
“The film is a remarkably insightful and powerful portrait of the human condition.” ~Frank Scheck, The Hollywood Reporter
“The writer’s adage that the specific is universal comes fully alive in this family drama, written and directed by Stephen Karam, based on his Tony-winning play.” ~Johanna Schneller, The Globe and Mail
