100 Word Review – The Skeleton Twins (2014)

From writer and director Craig Johnson (True Adolescents) and co-writer Mark Heyman (Black Swan, The Wrestler), comes this bitter-sweet drama about the strength of shared childhoods and sibling bonds.

Milo (Bill Hader) a failed actor, attempts suicide. His estranged twin sister Maggie (Kristen Wiig) gets the call as she is on the verge of doing the same. Forced back into each others lives after 10 years apart, they rediscover each other, themselves and just try to survive.

Co starring the equally wonderful Luke Wilson and Ty Burrell, this is a quirky moving film with moments of comedy, karma and catharsis.
