See You In Valhalla: DVD Review + Giveaway!











The Movie:

A young woman (Sarah Hyland) returns home to reunite with her estranged family after the bizarre death of her brother. With family secrets, old flames, small-town gossip and an uncomfortable family reunion looming, she must find a way to navigate and accept her past while preserving her present.

I got pulled into the story and was engaged within the first 5 minutes. From there you get the sense that this is going to be a movie that bring a dysfunctional family together just from the reaction of Hyland’s character and that’s pretty much exactly what it is. It’s a film that mixes so many things together but each thing is completely necessary to build and progress the story along. You have sadness, a bit of humor and the struggle to find oneself which really does balance everything out really well. Hyland’s character carries a mysterious burden in her that plays out throughout the film and it really makes you connect and feel for her. The plot of the film carries the subject of family togetherness very blatantly but doesn’t preach about it instead it nudges you and gives you reminders about what’s important. The most powerful moment came in the third act when, after a family squabble, their father has a stroke and make everyone realize that bickering with one another isn’t going to solve anything and they proceed to give their fallen brother the goodbye that they feel he deserves. It really is such a fantastic and thought provoking film that will get you thinking about life in general. 8/10
