Family

“Family” was interesting…The film was the equivalent of standing in line waiting to ride this epic roller coaster and being underwhelmed when you get off.  I got the plot line about Kate (played by  Taylor Schilling) and Maddie (played by Bryn Vale) as an Aunt who “gets” the niece.  That is the best part of being an aunt. The connection to Insane Clown Posse’s juggalo gathering was bizarre and a weird addition to an underwhelming plot.

From the desk of Dr. Dion Metzger: 

Taylor Schilling (Orange is The New Black), Brian Tyree Henry (Atlanta) and Kate McKinnon (SNL)…how can I not love “Family” when I love all three of them? Well, I didn’t. It wasn’t terrible but it wasn’t great either. I do have to point out I was pretty entertained by how little f—-s Taylor’s character gave. I also learned that a “juggalo gathering” is terrifying. Overall, “Family” barely made the cut for a stream…like a random pick if you’re bored .
