This award-winning drama is the story of one woman's return to the family she abandoned years before. Over the course of one turbulent Thanksgiving, sixtysomething hippie Krisha (Krisha Fairchild) shows up at her sister's home in Texas where she is greeted with a mixture of warmth and wariness from her various estranged relatives (most of whom are played by first-time writer-director Trey Edward Shults' friends and family). What follows is a welter of unbottled emotions as one broken individual tries to reconnect with her family after more than a decade of unexplained absence. The result is the sort of observational, kitchen sink character study that would have made John Cassavetes proud. 83 minutes R.
