The unstoppable Frances McDormand delivers another perfectly etched performance as an almost famous LA record producer dealing with her conservative son (Christian Bale) and his girlfriend (Kate Beckinsale) who have trouble adjusting to mum’s wild ways when they move into her Laurel Canyon home.
As raunchy as it is wrenchingly true, musical and mirthful - a gem from the writer/director of the brilliant, underrated 'High Art' and more recently, ‘The Kids Are All Right’.
