Kym crashes through her family and the weekend, careening off real and imaginary obstacles with a fierce yet still sympathetic rancor. It's the home movie you hope never to see of your life, impeccably filled with color and on-set live music and life and

The messiness that goes with genuinely flawed and complex people is what makes the film ring so true and cut so deep.
