The Skeleton Twins
First screened in September 2014
Director: Craig Johnson. Cast: Bill Hader, Kristen Wiig, Luke Wilson, Ty Burrell, Boyd Holbrook, Joanna Gleason, Kathleen Rose Perkins, Cliff Moylan. Screenplay: Craig Johnson and Mark Heyman.

Twitter Capsule: What a welcome if sobering surprise. Like The Savages with deeper, darker currents. Hader, Wiig both impress.

VOR:   Enters an existing groove in the market for funny-gloomy sibling stories, and visuals certainly don't distinguish it, but unusually committed to the messes its characters make and re-make.
