  1. A film of uncommon originality.
  2. The strange and delightful Talent Given Us is a movie that shouldn't work but does rather remarkably.
  3. 80
    A cross between a road movie, a documentary and a therapy session.
  4. One fears, however, that not every uncomfortable scene was scripted, and that we have just been privy to some awfully private moments. It makes for uneasy viewing, sure, but it's one of the most compelling rides around.
  5. 70
    Raw, fascinating, often unpleasant film.
  6. Occasionally funny and touching, but often embarrassing and cringe-inducing.

From the first listing of the actors...most of whom had the same last name, it was readily apparent that The Talent Given Us was not your ordinary film. But I was immediately drawn in by the quirky interactions of this complex, contentious, ultimately loving family on their Pilgrim's progress from New York to LA. I highly recommend this film. Expand
