Family (2019)

It’s a shame movies of this size always fall through the cracks because Taylor Schilling’s performance here really should be included in Best of Year discussions. Beyond that, while Family could easily have been one of those quirky Sundance-y comedy dramas that immediately fizzle from memory, this actually resonates for a lot longer due to the simple relationship dynamic, wonderful off-key observations and absolutely spot-on casting and performances. So many great faces here. Beyond all the hilarious vulgarity and crudeness, a lot of this is extremely heartfelt and just nice, which makes the Juggalo component highly appropriate. Honestly, I could have done with more.
