    A quiet, nearly plot-free drama enlivened by beautifully nuanced performances by its four-person leading ensemble, In Our Nature depicts familiar dysfunctional family dynamics with a welcome lack of melodrama.

    As prophetic as it is provocative, exploring dysfunction, in a recognizable but no less satisfying way.

    A study in fine gradations of resentment in the great outdoors, In Our Nature is a little too subtle for this genre. Country-house-fiasco films are only satisfying when the shit truly hits the fan.

    Brian Savelson's small-scaled domestic drama In Our Nature evokes a specific, fairly common experience: when two young lovers expose a still-blossoming relationship to their relatives' stifling attention.

    Nuanced work by the great John Slattery ("Mad Men") as an emotionally distant dad isn't enough to sustain more than sporadic interest in Brian Savelson's underwritten, slow-moving indie, which plays distressingly like a photographed off-Broadway drama.

    By the time Savelson has hit all the obligatory checkpoints (unplanned pregnancy, dying parents, bear home invasion), the reconciliation we all saw coming has been achieved.

    In Our Nature's visual style seems plastered on or allocated, not developed with any sort of authorial singularity.

The difficult father- son relationship is showed in a both subtle and complex way... All the dialogues seemed really natural and fitting the events on the screen. The acting was superb, all 4 leads couldn't do a better job and I can't really understand why this film didn't get a wider recognition. I would love to see more pictures like this, moving family dramas, telling some important truths about relationships with people we love and yet find it so difficult to communicate with. Expand
