Movie Info

We first meet Fanny, an obsessive-compulsive who lives in a group home and works at a candy factory about to go bankrupt. Fanny brings this secret to the Christmas dinner, where she reconnects with her self-absorbed sister Annie and their too-perfect-to-trust brother Danny. Mother Edie hosts the party with an iron fist, insisting at an ever-increasing pitch that everyone have fun. Their Vietnam vet father may act like his emotions died with his friends on the battlefield, but director Brown

"Fanny, Annie & Danny" may be an unpleasant story about unpleasant characters, but the acting is fabulous.

The more difficult characters here (all female) and resulting character dynamics are so consistently shrill that the pic feels a bit too one-dimensional and cruel to leave the small-tragedy aftertaste it could have.

Mostly the movie just gets off on how awful and/or pathetic its characters are, calling on the viewer to judge or pity rather than sympathize with its gallery of grotesques.

Fanny, Annie & Danny will make anybody with a family, the more dysfunctional the better, cringe and grin.

I left the film feeling horrible for or about the characters onscreen, but it doesn't mean this is a bad movie; it's a really great movie, just not a feel-good movie.

A superbly orchestrated screenplay, astonishing performances and riveting direction from San Francisco filmmaker Chris Brown deliver a family drama with darkly humorous riffs

Fanny, Annie & Danny will make you run up and hug your sketchiest uncle this holiday season. Family dysfunction at its finest.

Writer-director Chris Brown obviously loathes Christmas, and that's just fine with us, especially as that hostility has resulted in such a dark and funny film.

Writer-director Chris Brown makes a play for the "And You Thought Your Family Was Crazy" sweepstakes with Fanny, Annie & Danny.
