Family drama

Little Sister

The Commune | Toronto 2016

Based in part on director Thomas Vinterberg’s experiences growing up in a Copenhagen commune during the 1970s and ’80s and featuring a great performance by actress Trine Dyrholm.

The Hollars

A Middle-American-family-reconnects movie, the kind that marries the goofball antics of a dysfunctional family with dramatic questions like: What’s it all about? What are we all even doing here?

A Tale of Love and Darkness

A lovely tribute to a great writer and his Jewish mother-muse.

Morris from America

The type of family film that doesn’t come around nearly often enough.

The Tenth Man

An adult prodigal son returns home from New York City to the old Jewish neighborhood known as El Once in Buenos Aires.

Baba Joon

There is a quiet eloquence to director Yuval Delshad’s debut film about the burgeoning conflict between a father and his teenage son.

Toni Erdmann | Cannes 2016

An observational, 160-minute-long family drama-cum-screwball comedy took critics by surprise at this year’s Cannes Film Festival.
