Krisha TREY EDWARD SHULTS / 2015 / USA / 79 MINUTES / FILM RATING 18A
For the recovering addict or alcoholic, little can test the resolve for recovery quite like family. Returning to the bosom of her Texas kin for a Thanksgiving gathering, Krisha (Krisha Fairchild) finds herself smack up against the demons that had kept her away for a decade, and they appear to have been as dedicated to building up their strength as much as Krisha, now middle-aged and estranged from her only son, has been fortifying hers. It’s one thing to forgive yourself, but what if those you have hurt and neglected haven’t made that step?
