As Krisha drags her suitcase into her sister’s home for a Thanksgiving holiday, the air is buzzing with energy, and not necessarily the good kind. It’s been over ten years since Krisha has seen her family—her drug and alcohol problems had kept her estranged over the years. But now she’s turning over a new leaf, and helping with the turkey dinner seems like the first appropriate step. The house gets more and more packed with family members, conversations become forced and awkward, and Krisha’s mood drops from confident to unraveled in a matter of hours. Shot over nine days at his parent’s house in Texas, director Trey Edward Shults created a film that draws from intensely personal experience, and delivers a heavy emotional impact. Krisha Fairchild presents the central character with a dizzying whirlwind of emotional highs and lows, gifting an amazing performance reminiscent of Gena Rowlands in Cassavetes’ A Woman Under the Influence.
