In Memory Of My Father
Three brothers return home to attend their late father's wake, only to find that the only hope for moving in is to finally sort through their own quandaries, flaws, and failings in director Christopher Jaymes' quirky, seriocomic reunion film. Their father was Hollywood royalty, so what does that make the three wayward sons? As the day begins and the wake commences, the three boys become so wrapped up in their own immediate problems that they nearly forget to grieve. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"If you're a fan of jaundiced views of Hollywood or unedifying portraits of dysfunctional families, look no further."
‑ Wally Hammond, Time Out
"Despite the dark tone, the likeably unlikeable ensemble cast is uniformly excellent, and there are some real laughs to be had."
‑ Owen Williams, Empire Magazine
"There is not a false emotion running through In Memory Of My Father. It maintains a screwball sense of absurdity but paces itself to allow the humanism to shine through."
‑ Erik Childress, eFilmCritic.com
"There's more than a whiff of Festen and Altman in first-time director Christopher James's frantic, enjoyably overstuffed funeral drama."
‑ Kate Stables, Total Film
"Jaymes and his castmates nail the characters and the dialogue"
‑ Marty Mapes, Movie Habit
"Self-aware but self-regarding indie navel gazing; no cause for celebration."
‑ Leigh Singer, Film4
"Hand-held cameras and semi-improvised dialogue lend it realism, while the flurry of well-crafted comic situations it creates brings it to heights of hilarity."
‑ Eric D. Snider, EricDSnider.com
