Director: Kris Swanberg
Release: July 24, 2015
Kris Swanberg is the wife of Joe Swanberg, both are filmmakers, and they have a child together. Kris is an actress foremost, a writer second, and then a director. Joe created two excellent improv films, Drinking Buddies & Happy Christmas, while Kris is trying to make this her first major success. I see the heart here, perhaps the truth, and maybe even a touch of talent. But doesn’t it look like a Hallmark movie to anyone else? Haven’t we seen these emotion brought to the screen numerous times? Isn’t there something original that can be added here?
