Krisha (2015)

  • Drama
  • 1h 21m

Krisha, the ageing black sheep of her family, returns after more than a decade away to seek forgiveness and share Thanksgiving dinner. The happy reunion is short-lived however, as cracks start to penetrate her carefully composed façade. Facing the past is something not everyone - especially Krisha - is ready for. Shot over nine days at director Trey Edward Shults’ parents’ house, starring his aunt in the lead role alongside other family members, and drawn from real-life events, Krisha is an intensely personal effort from the feature first-timer.
