‘Family’ review by The Crimson

 Here’s a review of ‘Family’ by The Crimson

From The Crimson

“Family” is an endearing, fun-to-watch, and occasionally cheesy story about the importance of family (as the name suggests) and work-life balance. Kate is successful in her career, evident in her position as senior vice president of her company, and does whatever it takes to get ahead of others and fulfill her ambitions, even if it means neglecting her personal life and throwing others under the bus. As a result, Kate’s coworkers dislike her, and her relationship with her brother and father are close to non-existent. Taylor Schilling puts on an excellent performance, perfectly encapsulating the socially awkward, unempathetic, and impassive Kate, with her constant blank stare and monotonous voice. One of the most noteworthy scenes occurs when, after what seems like minutes of heartfelt pleading from Kate’s brother asking her to take care of Maddie, Schilling bluntly and unemotionally replies “No.” However, Kate is somehow eventually persuaded off-screen and agrees to temporarily care for Maddie, which becomes the catalyst for the rest of a humorous plot.

‘Family’ to be shown at the Boston Women’s Film Festival

‘Family’ to be shown at the Boston Women’s Film Festival on opening night – September 27

The premise of Laura Steinel’s debut film is familiar: closed-off character is forced to learn how to make connections with other people through awkward missteps and misunderstandings. But there are many surprises in the film thanks to a strong script, the performances of Taylor Schilling and newcomer Bryn Vale, and a stellar supporting cast – including Kate McKinnon playing an uptight, athleisure-wearing neighbor.

This terrific film celebrates everything that family means, from the complicated relationships you have with your blood relatives, to the family you choose who support you as you are, to the larger tribe that you belong to whether you know it or not.
