SUR­VIV­ING CHRIST­MAS WITH THE REL­A­TIVES

OUT 30 NOVEM­BER

Total Film - - Big Screen -

Drunk vic­ars and stoned teens are among the non-dra­mas in this con­trived com­edy of er­rors. Gemma Whe­lan tries hard to brighten a fraught fam­ily do at her late par­ents’ farm­house, but the turkey isn’t alone in re­sist­ing cap­ture: laughs and emo­tional stakes prove equally elu­sive in the des­per­a­tion to en­gi­neer a sense of mount­ing cri­sis.
