Movie Info

The adult children of a conservative New England family return home for Thanksgiving weekend and find themselves forced to come to grips with their family's dysfunction. The prime difficulty comes from the fact that their parents, particularly their already taciturn and enigmatic father, are rapidly distancing themselves from their children. This leaves the off-spring not only pondering their place in the family, but also with each other.

Audience Reviews for The Myth of Fingerprints

    An indie film trying too hard to be too indie? Perhaps but I found the performances to be compelling. It's nice to see Roy Scheider involved in something that doesn't involve the ocean or a large fish.

    somber and overreaching but well acted

    A little known gem of a movie, with exceptional performances from its ensemble cast (particularly Julianne Moore and Noah Wyle). The storyline hardly sounds like gripping stuff - an extended family reunites for the Thanksgiving holidays, and have to confront each other and their secrets - but it's expertly done and very well photographed and edited. Definitely worth a look.
