Family Circus (2023) Sundance 2023

Michael Ironside lends support as a police officer who ends up the guest in a Vietnamese-American home during the holidays. The family is having a bad night because of a drunk driving accident, which they can't let the cop know about.

Black comedy mixes with  tight suspense in one of the  best thrillers of any length in a long time. Who says thrillers have to be about robbery and murder? There is enough going on in our regular lives to keep us on the edge of our seats. 

Blessed with a killer cast, Ironside being matched by everyone else on screen, this is a film that makes it clear just how important a solid ensemble is. I would absolutely love to see this group work together again.

While normally I would suggest that something this could should be made into a feature, this film is so perfect I would advise against it. On the other hand I would gladly love to have the cast and crew come together to tell a different story.

Highly recommended.
