Happy New Year, Colin Burstead (2018)

Ben Wheatley directs Neil Maskell, Charles Dance and Sam Riley in this extended family argument set over an awkward New Year’s Eve party.

Not the best Wheatley production. It apes Altman and Leigh and Festen but doesn’t have much in the way of deep things about the human condition to say. His more obvious genre works are where his talents lie but this is a watchable enough experiment.
