About the Movie

A struggling NYC artist, John Hollar (John Krasinski), is forced to return to the small, middle-American town he left behind after learning about his mother’s illness. Back in the house he grew up in, John is immediately swept up in the problems of his dysfunctional family, high school rival and an over-eager ex-girlfriend as he faces impending fatherhood with his NYC girlfriend (Academy Award Nominee Anna Kendrick, 2009, Best Supporting Actress, Up in the Air). John Krasinski’s second feature as a director is a poignant look at the bonds of family and friendship.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The swirl of anxiety plays out too patly in Jim Strouse's script, but the performers, especially Ms. Martindale and the jittery Mr. Copley, keep it enjoyable, even touching at times. – Neil Genzlinger, New York Times, Aug 25, 2016

Fresh: Is The Hollars an original, breathtaking dramedy that says anything new about middle-class suburbia and family? No. But with a brisk runtime and a terrific cast, it's a pleasant and bittersweet look at one family struggling to keep it together. – Devan Coggan, Entertainment Weekly, Aug 26, 2016

Rotten: The film struggles so hard to be funny that the comic potential is diluted. In fact, sometimes it seems downright bland. – G. Allen Johnson, San Francisco Chronicle, Aug 31, 2016

Rotten: The prospect of life and death - all at once - as a time to take stock, shake self-doubt and to man up is an idea worth exploring. But "The Hollars" rings hollow. – Joe Dziemianowicz, New York Daily News, Aug 26, 2016

Amazing movies

This movie is amazing. Margo should get an Oscar for her role in this.

Must Watch!

The reviewers got this one wrong. I saw this movie in a full theater and everyone, myself included, felt the full range of emotion this film offers. Krasinski hit the nail on the head with this one. You will see yourself and you will see your family as the movie unfolds. Couldn’t have asked for better casting with Margo at her peak as the head of the Hollar family. It’s an immediate favorite for me!

I really liked it!

In the age of copy and paste family dramas, John Krasinskis' The Hollars stands out!
