A 16-year-old girl takes her parents hostage after they miss her big jump-roping competition.
Family Weekend is a a really fun family comedy with heart. The movie features surprisingly good acting all around, but Olesya Rulin steals the show!
The movie centers on a high school speed jumper who's dysfunctional family lets her down, and her desperate attempt to right the ship before it's too late. Kristin Chenoweth and Matthew Modine are fantastically convincing on the dysfunctional side, and Joey King's performance is both skin-crawlingly creepy and endearing and truly unexpected from such a young star.
Regarding Rulin's, her performance is spot on, and he portrays both her strong competitive side and vulnerable side flawlessly. She engages and keeps the audience's attention, and though her character is weird and quirky, we all want her to succeed. To quote Kelly Golighty "She reminds me of Audrey Hepburn in My Fair Lady with a dash of Lucille Ball thrown in for good measure."
The 16 year old girl is played convincingly enough by a much older actress (who also happens to eerily resemble the Olsen Twins), but the primary reason for getting this is Joey King http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1428821/?ref_=tt_cl_t4 (the Ramona in Ramona and Beezus). She plays a film buff/ aspiring actress. The first two screenshots show her as in 'Taxi Driver' and 'Reservoir Dogs'.
