Annie and Baxter, the adult children of the controversial husband and wife conceptual performance art couple famous for their quirky macabre public performances, have never got over the fact that their parents kept using them during their childhood in their often gory and disturbing satirical public performances. They often clash with their now elderly parents over this and blame them for their problems in their adult life. However, the two become worried when they're told by the police that their parents have gone missing during their trip outside of town. The brother considers the possibility that something horrible might have happened to them, but the sister is convinced that it's just another one of their stupid games or twisted conceptual performances. She convinces him that they should go and look for them themselves.

    Striving to make deep statements about life, art and family bonds, it doesnt quite get there, but the effort is enough to leave a mark. ( Read More )

  • Ign

    It begins at a high enough level and the cast is enjoyable enough throughout that The Family Fang isnt bad as much as it just isnt as good as one first imagines it will be, or should be. ( Read More )

    Bateman and Nicole Kidman, too old to convincingly pull off this sibling pair, would have fared better as the parents. ( Read More )
