  • Ben Wheatley strips things way back for his nerve-raddled family reunion comedy, and the result is one of his best, most fluid films.

  • Every minute of this film has something of interest, every frame is well composed. And yet I admit I found there was something a bit contrived and unreal about it, like an epic improv session.

  • Plenty of classy ingredients here, but Wheatley's tentative first foray into the realm of adult drama is not the heart-bruising emotional assault course it could have been.

  • Commanding a handheld camera, Wheatley orchestrated this comedy with delirium-free, improvised-like routines that bring it closer to the experimental genre.

  • Cuts like acid through the fatty, feel-good excess of the Christmas film canon.

    Feb 13, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Colin Burstead is spectacularly well-written, Wheatley's dense, rapid-fire dialogue packed with laughs and crafting a believable family dynamic.
