Movie Info

Kyle and Jen, estranged siblings, travel from New York City to rural Pennsylvania to pack up the home of their recently deceased mother. While there, they make a discovery that turns their world upside-down. A Picture of You is a serious movie about life that collides with a funny movie about death. It's a story about family, loss, secrets, letting go, and starting anew.(c) First Pond

  • Nimbly avoiding the excesses of melodrama and the recessiveness of mumblecore, Chan and his likably low-key cast navigate hairpin turns from drama to comedy to outright farce with an impressive sense of proportion.

  • A curiously likable, entertainingly laid-back Asian-American take on all-too-familiar dysfunctional family tropes, this Kickstarter-enabled effort boldly mines farce along with sentiment.

  • Sensitive and understated, J.P. Chan's A Picture of You balances humor and sentiment with an instinctive hand, skillfully unearthing honest, unexpected laughs amid intense grief.

  • The situations of "A Picture of You" feel a bit forced but they're handled in such a likable way that it's forgivable, especially in the superior second half of the film.

    Jun 20, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…
  • Mr. Chan's skill with actors - particularly with Ms. Mei and Mr. Pang's persuasive, easygoing banter - compensates for the story's limitations.

    Jun 19, 2014 | Full Review…
  • This disarmingly low-key genre-hybrid delivers both dramatically and comedically.
