Synopsis

Quirky and rebellious April Burns lives with her boyfriend in a low-rent New York City apartment miles away from her emotionally distant family. But when she discovers that her mother has a fatal form of breast cancer, she invites the whole clan to her place for a most chaotic Thanksgiving.

MUBI's take

After screenwriting success with What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, Peter Hedges won the Special Jury Prize at Sundance for his directorial debut. Peppered with the vivacious wit of Patricia Clarkson’s deliciously mordant performance, dysfunction crackles between characters in this meaty ensemble drama.
