Description

Preceded by the music video MULLETUDE.


Executive produced by Fred Armisen (Portlandia, Saturday Night Live), a moving portrait of an eccentric New York family navigating the chaos that divides them, yet finding what makes them alike will help them reunite.


A glimpse into the lives of an eccentric New York family, CHARM CIRCLE follows filmmaker Nira Burstein as she attempts to bridge the fractured relationships between herself and her family. Weaving together decades-old home videos and contemporary footage deftly, the film crafts a powerful family portrait that explores the value of the bonds that tie us together. Burstein’s brave, wryly amusing feature is as loving as it is unpredictable. With moments of humor, music, and creativity, CHARM CIRCLE finds compassion in the most challenging places.
