Fiction, 2019, 95′

Ahh… the American suburbs with all its strange rituals. DeBoer and Luebbe – screenwriters, directors and actresses in the film – crafted this world inhabited by fierce soccer moms, adults wearing braces, matching pink and blue outfits, baby exchanges, little dogs and babies, golf carts and football matches. In this delicious dark comedy in cheerful colours, it is as if David Lynch mated with Wes Anderson to give birth to this film.
