This play dives deep into the inner workings of the Weston family and revels in their dysfunction. The family has serious issues, pills, alcohol, adultery, weed, etc., but it also has heart. The story and writing reminded me of Tennessee Williams' work, southern families full of conflict and pain. It also has a dose of comedy and the ability to laugh at the absurdity of their arguments at times. I think this is a play that won't appeal to everyone. At times it was hard for me to identify with the characters because they all seem to view themselves as victims. But over all I thought it was well written and didn't shy away from dark topics.

Liked the content of the movie, however thought the ending was odd and abrupt. Wanted to purchase the book, so glad I read reviews first, and find its not a novel but formatted as a play. Will not purchase for this reason.

Didn't know it was written in play form. The characters were a bunch of oddballs but that's what most families are made up of!
