From IMDb: “Kate Stone (Taylor Schilling) is career-focused, and enjoys her life that way. Her brash attitude keeps relationships at arm’s length, making her an outcast in her own right. When her estranged brother calls asking her to babysit her tween niece Maddie, Kate reluctantly agrees to help. But babysitting overnight unexpectedly turns into a week, and Kate’s life spins into chaos. As Maddie reveals stories of being bullied and of wanting to run away and be a Juggalo, the two form a unique bond. In FAMILY, Schilling delivers a delightful and layered comedic performance. Laura Steinel’s debut feature has heart, reminding us that family can be found in all different forms.”

Poster Rating: C+

Review: It speaks to the film’s premise, but doesn’t do a lot for the viewer. The Juggalo makeup might cause some curious glances, but not a lot of interest.

Trailer Rating: C+

Review: Taylor Schilling looks to be having a bit of fun as the childless aunt who figures out how to parent a child she had no hand and no interest in raising.
