Krisha (2015)

Director: Trey Edward Shults. Cast: Krisha Fairchild, Alex Dobrenko, Robyn Fairchild. 83 min. Rated R. Drama.

After several years away, a mother returns to her extended family on Thanksgiving, and everyone is hesitant at mingling with her; especially her own son. The secret is how she devastated her family in the past. It takes some patience to slog through this film, particularly since the revelation comes at minute 50 of the 80 minutes. But the film is laudable because of the extremely simple production (the film-maker cast his own family, about one of their own family members), and how the script offers two endings, leaving it up to you to decide which is the true one.
