For #68 of the #DLMChallenge #365moviesin365days on April 22nd I watched: The Skeleton Twins.
Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader in a movie that isn’t all that funny? How was it? Find out here [obvious clickbait is obvious 😉 ].
The Skeleton Twins follows a brother and sister who, on the same day, attempt to kill themselves. Yeah, that’s the opening scenario.
They get together after a while apart and begin to mend their relationship and look to each other to discover their reasons to live. In a sense.
This movie is quite deep, but there are some dark comedy moments throughout. Both SNL alums give tremendous performances in this two-hander.
While Hader seems to keep into the comedic side for other films, Wiig seems to revel in the dark comedy sub-genre with films such as Welcome to Me and Girl Most Likely.
If you like these types of melodramatic character studies then check this out, you should be pleased.
