Showcasing one of the best performances by an actress in any film over the past year, Krisha is the story of a woman’s return to the family she abandoned years before, set entirely over the course of one turbulent Thanksgiving. When Krisha (Krisha Fairchild) shows up at her sister’s Texas home on Thanksgiving morning, her extended family greets her with a mixture of warmth and wariness. Almost immediately a palpable unease permeates the air, which only grows stronger as Krisha gets to work cooking the turkey and trying to make up for lost time catching up with her various relatives, in particular her alienated son, Trey (writer/director Trey Edward Shults, her real-life nephew). As Krisha's attempts at reconciliation are increasingly rebuffed, tension and suspicion escalate, with long-buried secrets and deep-seated resentments bursting out in cathartic confrontations. A potent combination of innovative cinematic storytelling and timeless themes of love, family and forgiveness, Krisha is winner of both the Grand Jury and Audience Awards at the 2015 South by Southwest Film Festival, as well as the John Cassavetes Award at the 2016 Independent Spirit Awards.
