The HollarsAbout the Film
In this dysfunctional family dramedy, frustrated New York artist John Hollar (John Krasinski) returns to his Middle American hometown to deal with a family crisis. While his mother (Margo Martindale) handles the situation with aplomb, the same can’t be said of his distraught father (Richard Jenkins) and adrift brother (Sharlto Copley). As John tries to unite the fractured clan while growing anxious about starting his own with very pregnant girlfriend Becca (Anna Kendrick), he must revisit the life he left behind. Krasinski displays an assured hand in his sophomore feature, ably bringing the Hollar family to life with poignancy and humor.
