A bit of a stage-y, act-y film, this, and in that regard somewhat enjoyable, but story-wise the central family is, almost to a (wo)man, intensely unlikeable, with the few who aren’t mean or spiteful still blithely disrespectful to ‘the help’, or ill-served by lurid plot twists that ring slightly false.
