The new comedy by British maverick Ben Wheatley (Kill List, SFF 2011; High-Rise, SFF 2016), reunites a family at a country mansion for a celebration that quickly goes wrong.

A great British ensemble cast, including Neil Maskell (Kill List), Sam Riley (Control) and Charles Dance (Game of Thrones), come together in this bitingly funny, superbly written catalogue of all the things that can make forced family gatherings awkward. Colin Burstead (Maskell) hires an enormous country mansion to reunite his extended family and some friends to ring in the new year. Nobody seems particularly keen on Colin’s gathering, but family is important, he maintains, and they all roll in to the grand old house. “It’s like fucking Downton,” says one of the new arrivals. But there’s nothing genteel about this gathering, particularly when Colin’s black sheep brother (Riley) arrives and the drinks get going.

Ben Wheatley strips things way back for his nerve-raddled family reunion comedy, and the result is one of his best, most fluid films.
