After ten years apart, two siblings reunite under strenuous circumstances. Despite starring Saturday Night Live veterans Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader, viewers expecting a traditional comedy may be turned off by the confronting subject matter: this film is an examination of mental health, and its effect and importance on one’s life.
Nonetheless, Wiig and Hader are impressive throughout, excelling equally in the comedic and more earnest aspects of the film. Assisting them is a genuinely funny screenplay that also tackles heavy topics such as depression and suicide in a way that is frank, but ultimately uplifting.
