The Talent Given Us
Time Out says
Posted: Thu Jul 28 2005In this nutty, heartfelt comedy, writer-director Andrew Wagner puts a Freudian twist on the American road movie: He cast his own parents as Upper West Side retirees who drive cross-country with their real-life daughters, Maggie and Emily, en route to visit their reclusive screenwriter son, Andrew. Faux documentary, home movie or unexpurgated family therapy? All three, actually, with a lot of the fun not knowing how much of their screwball dynamic is exaggerated and how much was simply caught on the fly.
