On Netflix, Jason Bateman, Nicole Kidman and one more film than for Ozark fans

I always comment that when you sit down to look for what to see in NetflixIt is good to dive before clicking on the options that the platform offers us in advance.

Calm anxiety and decide how to go to the video store. Go through different shelves and choose.

This is how I got to the poster yesterday The Family Fang (because it is like this, in English), where you see a rejuvenated Jason Bateman and one Nicole Kidman apparently for Bótox.

Kidman and Bateman, brothers in fiction in this film lost in the Netflix catalog.

It is a film that did not premiere in Argentine cinemas, which had its world premiere at the Toronto Film Festival 5 years ago and that, for those who follow Ozark, the series that until now has never won a Golden Globe, but has won several Emmys, will have many reference points.

Bateman, who as a boy was already a comedian and then turned to drama, is the protagonist, producer and directed 10 of the 30 episodes that he has so far Ozark. Inter-family relationships they are, in addition to the problems with a Mexican cartel, the swing on which the series is hammocked.

And it seems that Bateman, who directed The Family Fang, there he was caught by the idea of ​​the dysfunctional family, of how children try to understand their parents (and not the other way around), and he also took a couple of the actors from the film set to Ozark.

We will get to it.

On La familia Fang, Bateman is Baxter, brother of Anne (Nicole Kidman). Her parents are Christopher Walken and Maryann Plunkett, as adults, but the film begins with Anne and Baxter as children, when her parents are Jason Butler Harner and Kathryn Hahn (today she is Agnes in WandaVision).

The Fang (Tusk) are particular parents. They think they are cutting edge, and they make short films in which they force their children to participate, and in them they put people – common, unprepared – in an uncomfortable situation. Like faking a bank robbery, pretending that their mother is murdered, or having them play and sing in Central Park and fence them to record people’s reaction.

-I think they’re losing it.

-Artistic sensitivity?

-No. The reason.

The dialogue is between Anne and Baxter, already grown up, when a fortuitous accident by him brings the four of them together again at the same table.

La familia Fang is what we said at the beginning, a dissection of relationships in which each one has their role -and it is still curious that Bateman has reserved one in which he is subject to what his older sister thinks and does- and to see how the cards are played when the boredom, rather than the loss of artistic sensibility or the reason, whatever prevails.

Bateman, son-in-law of composer Paul Anka, would later call for Ozark Jason Butler Harner to play Roy Petty, the gay agent obsessed with catching Marty Byrde (Bateman), and Harris Yulin (the Fang’s mentor) to play Buddy, who lives in the basement of the house on the lake. of the Byrdes.

The film has a twist towards the mysterious, when the children must undertake an unexpected search. And the result, again, will have to do with how one looks at their elderswhether or not they are as eccentric as the Fang.

Because if when you say that “Everything we did in life was for art”, you receive a reply “No, it was for love of you”, there is not much to say or understand.

“The Family Fang”
