THE HOLLARS (2016): The Thing I Liked – Sharlto Copley’s Performance…

Directed by John Krasinski, The Hollars is a comedy / drama about a son returning to his small town after his mother falls ill. Not the most obvious premise for comedy but there are laughs to be had with Krasinki’s latest directorial effort. Besides the good humour, especially courtesy of Sharlto Copley’s brother character, I enjoyed the film’s portrait of family, sibling dynamics and all the good performances from all the cast.

Written by Jim Strouse who also wrote one of my favourites, People, Places, Things (2015)Anna Kendrick, Charlie Day, Richard Jenkins, Margot Martingale and Randall Park also star.

The Hollars is fitting for when you’re in the mood for a relaxing drama / comedy with a little splash of romance – nothing too taxing.

Happy Film Loving
