Another Happy Day Movie Reviews
User reviews on Another Happy Day
I did not enjoy watching this film and I do not recommend seeing it in the theaters. It is always hard to watch a film full of very dislikable characters, this was no exception, i do not know how an audience is supposed to care about such awful characters, I sure did not. I thought that Elleb Barkin did an amazing job with her role, she really deserves to be recognized at last. The film was a bit too intense for my taste and I think there was a bit too much drama in the film. There are couple of scenes in the film that are extremely strong and moving but the rest of the film is not that good. Overall, I would see this film only for Barkin’s performance, otherwise renting it would be a smarter choice.
This film in a comedy / satire format goes right to the core of the dysfunction that exist on the roams of the american family nucleus that is not limited to any racial, social or economical level of society today!
The casting is outstanding, each and every actor brings the level of credibility that enhances the message director Sam Levinson so cleverly delivers with this priceless independent film!
Ellen Barkin, Demi More & Ellen Burstyn are brilliant on their respective pinnacle roles who no doubt exemplify the caliber of actors that Hollywood many time overlook for the trendy and not talented!
This is a comedy about a dysfunctional family that is directed by Sam Levinson and stars Ellen Barkin, Ezra Miller and Ellen Burstyn. I kind of liked this film and I think it is worth to see it in the theaters. The film was full of very talented actors who did a great job and it was full of feelings that translated very well on the big screen. The plot is pretty dark and there is a lot of dysfunction in the film but I thought it was interesting, maybe a bit cruel at times but it is a good thing that this was just a movie. I like that the director has sympathy to all the characters, even really evil ones. Overall, I had a good time watching this film.
Another Happy Day is a film that was submitted into the Sundance Film Festival. Director Sam Levinson dives deep into family dynamics in this comedy. Even though this film was a comedy, it had just the right amount of drama to make it real. This film is about a wedding held at the main character’s parent’s Annapolis estate. Lynn, the main character, is there to see her son’s wedding, who she was not around to raise because of a nasty divorce that left her out of his life. There are tons of films that try to examine family relationships but I thought this movie was especially able to illustrate the rawness and truth of these relationships. The family in the film is upper-class, and very wealthy. I’ve only seen reality shows that show off the issues that extremely rich families have but this movie does an amazing job. I very much liked the film and would suggest it to anyone.
