Directed by Christine Jeffs and Megan Holley (Overture Films, 2009)

Christine Jeffs and Megan Holley's touching film about a spunky but dysfunctional family on economic and emotional skids is something of a misfit-part fairy tale about two lovely but cursed sisters and part dark comedy about the underside of the American Dream. But maybe a film about misfits should have some of the same unpolished and uneven feel of its characters, inviting exasperation and compassion in response to folks more like us than we would like to think.
