Program Notes

On the fourth Thursday in November, 84 million American families will gather together… and wonder why. Claudia Larson is heading home for yet another chaotic and exasperating family Thanksgiving. But a new visitor offers some interesting possibilities. If they can duck the flying turkeys, this romance may just have a chance. Masterfully directed by Academy Award® winner Jodie Foster (Little Man Tate), Home for the Holidays boasts an all-star cast including Academy Award® winner Holly Hunter (The Piano), Robert Downey, Jr. (Chaplin), Academy Award® winner Anne Bancroft (The Graduate), Charles Durning (Tootsie), Dylan McDermott (Steel Magnolias), Steve Guttenberg (Short Circuit) and Claire Danes (Homeland).

"Don’t let Hunter’s chipper demeanor and the sitcom-ish setup fool you. By the time Foster reaches the centerpiece dinner sequence (an amazing feat of editing by Lynzee Klingman), her vision of the familial reunion has intensified to life-or-death, do-or-die proportions, with each exhumed secret and pointed insult sending shudders across the table." — Danny King, The A.V. Club

"Jodie Foster has directed a poisoned paean to the great American tradition of torturous family gatherings."TV Guide
