3SMReviews: the Skeleton Twins
This was the perfect combination of funny/sad and both actors were excellent in their performances.* While I could have done with another lip-syncing choice** I still appreciated the camaraderie of the estranged brother-sister. And the pain felt very realistic, which is not as common in movies as one would think.
Where watched: Laurelhurst with S. North.
*props to Luke Wilson too, who played affible goofy/odd husband like a champ.
**because I can’t stand Starship

I it interesting to think about how their SNL relationship and personal friendship may have shaped this movie. It seems like a slightly different role for both of them. Definitely on my viewing list.
This movie looked like it had a lot of promise from the preview I saw. In my opinion, family dynamics aren’t particularly easy to capture onscreen. When you see one that does it really well, it’s definitely a treat.
