Audience Reviews for Yelling to the Sky

½

If every family is each unhappy in their own unique way, then the O'Hara family has hit the jackpot. First, Ola(Antonique Smith) and Sweetness(Zoe Kravitz) have to face bullies on the way home from school, before having to suffer under the hand of their abusive and alcoholic father(Jason Clarke), as their mother(Yolonda Ross) is pretty much catatonic. And then Ola gets pregnant which takes her away from her sister. So to recap. We have bullying, alcoholism, physical abuse, mental illness, and teenage pregnancy. Did I leave anything out? Wait, there's also drug abuse, yet to come. In other words, with "Yelling to the Sky," there is just one awful and miserable situation without any kind of plot or story to really speak of. So, that just goes to show you how good an actor Jason Clarke really is, as he gives a master tutorial on how to build a character out of absolutely nothing. And I have never been so glad to see Tim Blake Nelson in anything before this.
