Well-traveled and prized on the U.S. fest circuit, dramatically satisfying pic transcends ethnic pigeonholing to emerge as a fine calling card for frosh helmer Lanre Olabisi.
A fascinating, impossible to ignore film. It is weird because it is an African-American SUBURBAN family with all of that suburban baggage... not a "black" film or a film about race.
Translate the locale from New Jersey to Chicago or LA, the "foreign" alienated papa from Nigeria to Poland or Poughkeepsie and it still works.
Great acting, weird camera angles, delicious and impossible to look away from family issues (we have all been there, at this party, in this house).
