Krisha returns for Thanksgiving dinner after ten years away from her family, but past demons threaten to ruin the festivities.
Krisha wants to fix her relationship with her son Trey, and her one chance at doing that is showing that she has fixed her life while at Thanksgiving dinner with her whole family. Whom she hasn't seen in quite a long time.
This film is amazing. Your heart breaks while you're enjoying the film. This is a story that definitely pulls at your heartstrings. We all have troublesome families. We all absolutely love our families but we all definitely have those people who we can handle in small doses. And this film shows just that. And it does it in such a raw way that you feel as if you are part of the family.
My favorite part of Krisha was the soundtrack. There was some score - but most of it was ambient noises. Chopping of vegetables, the clangs you hear when someone is cooking. And when things were hectic you would hear a lot more ambient noise layered on top of the current ambient noise. And I absolutely loved that. To me it allowed you to feel what Krisha was feeling.
This film leaves audiences with their thoughts. When it ends you will only be able to think of Krisha for the next few days. You think about every little part that happened and try to figure out what exactly happened to the character Krisha. And I love films like this. Films that make you sit and think about everything. When a film resonates with you, you will find yourself thinking about it weeks later. And that is exactly what Krisha has done to me.
