Kate Stone (Taylor Schilling) is career-focused, and enjoys her life that way. Her brash attitude keeps relationships at arm's length, making her an outcast in her own right. When her estranged brother calls asking her to babysit her tween niece Maddie, Kate reluctantly agrees to help. But babysitting overnight unexpectedly turns into a week, and Kate's life spins into chaos. As Maddie reveals stories of being bullied and of wanting to run away and be a Juggalo, the two form a unique bond. In FAMILY, Schilling delivers a delightful and layered comedic performance. Laura Steinel's debut feature has heart, reminding us that family can be found in all different forms.Written by

Great film that shouldn't be overlooked!
The basic set up will remind you of Uncle Buck, but thankfully the film has more going for it than just that. The acting all around is great. Taylor Schilling does a really good job playing this type of character and was fun seeing other familiar faces pop up in bit roles here and there as well such as Brian Tyree Henry (playing a martial arts instructor which is a interesting turn for him), Kate McKinnon, Allison Tolman, and Natasha Lyonne. The juggalos were mostly portrayed fairly accurately and it was fun seeing the Insane Clown Posse themselves show up towards the end though I wish their scene had been longer or that they played a slightly bigger role I guess (but also understand the main story wasn't really about them). All in all don't overlook this one. Sure the title Family is a little generic for a film but that's really my only negative. The comedy lands really well and is actually fresh and hilarious rather than material that felt recycled. Dialogue especially was a standout.
