Just not enough..
23 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

I really wanted to like this film. I commend the filmmakers in trying to make a film that is different and relatable.

The opening scene is inexplicably haunting. It is the sound of death and the face of a woman with pain and heartbreak and loss seared in her face, looking ready for death. And then the film starts and it is about Krisha coming to visit for Thanksgiving dinner. The whole film is based on that 1 or 2 days.

I give the film 10/10 for atmosphere. It really builds up an expectation of something that will happen. But nothing really happens. I mean sure, it would be interesting for the family if this was a real-life event. But for a outside viewer, we need more darker secrets and twists. Otherwise it just seems like a Thanksgiving dinner in a slightly more dysfunctional family than most. But meh.. it's hardly breathtaking.

So well done filmmakers for starting the film well and giving a good atmosphere. And the cast are fantastic. But this film needs a remake with a different middle and ending and it could then be something really amazing.
