Krisha (SNEAK PREVIEW!)

  • Krisha Poster Slider Image

USA | 83 min | R | DCP | Dir. Trey Edward Shults

A sneak preview brought to you by A24 (Room, Ex Machina, Amy, Spring Breakers), winner of the Grand Jury and Audience Awards at SXSW and official selection at Cannes, Krisha is the story of a woman’s return to the family she abandoned years before, set entirely over the course of one turbulent Thanksgiving. When Krisha shows up at her sister’s Texas home on Thanksgiving morning, her family greets her with a mixture of warmth and wariness. A palpable unease permeates the air, which only grows as Krisha gets to work cooking the turkey and trying to make up for lost time. As Krisha’s attempts at reconciliation are rebuffed, tension and suspicion peak, with long-buried secrets and deep-seated resentments coming to the fore in an emotionally charged familial reckoning. A potent combination of innovative cinematic storytelling and timeless themes of love, family, and forgiveness, Krisha took the film community by storm. The story moves from dark humor to deep pathos to almost horror movie-like intensity with virtuosic camerawork reminiscent of Terrence Malick and a propulsive score. Shult's Krisha  is a shining example of how personal, homegrown filmmaking can lead to an accomplished breakout feature.- A24
