The Family Fang (2016)

By The Miniplex (other events)

10 Dates Through May 30, 2016

Jason Bateman (ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT) directs and stars in this "smart, tart" dramedy about a grown brother and sister (Bateman and Nicole Kidman) trying to distance themselves from the "clan of provocative art terrorists" who raised them (Christopher Walken and Maryann Plunkett).

Adult siblings Baxter (Jason Bateman) and Annie (Nicole Kidman), scarred from an unconventional upbringing, return to their family home after an unlikely accident. When their parents (Christopher Walken and Maryann Plunkett) — performance artists famous for elaborate public hoaxes — suddenly go missing under troubling circumstances, Baxter and Annie investigate. Unsure whether it’s foul play or just another elaborate ruse, nothing can prepare them for what they discover... 

"A sharply drawn portrait of a dysfunctional, tortured artistic family that speaks affectingly to the troubled legacy that all parents inevitably bequeath to their children...with Bateman and Kidman nicely inhabiting one of the more tender and persuasive brother-sister relationships in recent movie memory." - Variety

"A provocative film that questions the limits of art in a world that forgets to be human. The result is funny, touching and vital." - Rolling Stone

"The Family Fang goes deep into dysfunction, but even more impressively, it smuggles in the daredevilish art theories of the late Chris Burden and his ilk." - Time Out New York
