It needs the type of patience that is accorded to a Cassavete's film. The soundtrack has an integral part in the film.
Krisha, the ageing black sheep of her family, returns after more than a decade away to seek forgiveness and share Thanksgiving dinner. The happy reunion is short-lived, however, as cracks start to penetrate her carefully composed façade. Facing the past is something not everyone - especially Krisha - is ready for. Shot over nine days at director Trey Edward Shults' parents' house, starring his aunt in the lead role alongside other family members, and drawn from real-life events, Krisha is an intensely personal effort from the feature first-timer.
