About the Movie

When Krisha shows up at her sister’s Texas home on Thanksgiving morning, her close and extended family greet her with a mixture of warmth and wariness. Almost immediately, a palpable unease permeates the air, one which only grows in force as Krisha gets to work cooking the turkey and trying to make up for lost time by catching up with her various relatives, chief among them her nephew, Trey. As Krisha's attempts at reconciliation become increasingly rebuffed, tension and suspicion reach their peak, with long-buried secrets and deep-seated resentments coming to the fore as everyone becomes immersed in an emotionally charged familial reckoning.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Shults builds a creeping sense of dread with the same anxious naturalism that the late indie auteur John Cassavetes brought to such films as A Woman Under the Influence. – Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly, Mar 19, 2016

Fresh: Krisha is many things: a nightmare, a cry for help, a cringe-comedy with sobbing instead of a laugh track, a cracked family portrait, an apology and a valentine. – David Fear, Rolling Stone, Mar 23, 2016

Fresh: Fairchild's performance is key to the movie: Krisha is witty and chatty one moment, shut down like a deserted fairground the next. We see dazzling warmth in her eyes but also the terror of total system failure. – Stephanie Zacharek, TIME Magazine, Mar 31, 2016

Fresh: "Krisha" is obviously personal for Shults, but there's a limit to that fact. The film's technique transcends the merely personal. – Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune, Mar 24, 2016

Very well done

But hard to watch.

Not for pleasure

This film is searing. It’s a magnificent achievement, but it is not something to be watched at leisure. If your life has been touched by addiction or family rifts, you may find it triggering. It was a painful watch for me, but I’m so glad I did.

Great Film

The directing in this film is outstanding. Fairchild is also perfect for this film. It's a must see film.
