She needs to see a local artist about signing on to appear in her gallery, so they seize the opportunity to meet his family whom he hasn’t visited in years. What they find is a clan of resentful suburbanites with more than the odd bone to pick with life–father () is practically catatonic, mother () is bitter and unwelcoming, brother () is a boiling pot of unexpressed rage, and his wife () is an adorable chatterbox who latches onto Davidtz’s big-city glamour and never lets go.
