By K. Harris HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on February 4, 2013
Format: DVD
If you watch indie films with any frequency, there really isn't much that is revelatory about the set-up of "In Our Nature." This is one of those small films that sets a handful of characters down in an isolated setting so that they may discuss relationships and mend perceived injustices. The central pair in writer/director Brian Savelson's piece are an alienated father and son. Each is accompanied by a significant other, and the quartet meet accidentally at the family's lakeside cabin. These intimate films can sometimes feel like a staged play, as is the case here, and may not be for every taste. But I found "In Our Nature" quite charming and surprisingly restrained. In the hands of a capable and likable cast, small verbal exchanges can highlight a lifetime of dysfunction and misunderstanding. Not all is doom and gloom, though, as much humor is peppered throughout. Not much happens from an actual plotting standpoint, but the characters make strides (both big and little) to accepting one another.

John Slattery (Mad Men) and Zach Gilford (Friday Night Lights) do most of the heavy lifting as the father and son with plenty of history. Neither is especially pleased to see the other, and both practically flee at the thought of spending time together. Luckily, they have some well-intentioned women in their lives. Jena Malone plays Gilford's free spirited girlfriend and Gabrielle Union is on hand as Slattery's citified paramour. As the ladies see the men they love behave so boorishly, it starts to strain the couples in unexpected ways. And while this is principally about family catharsis, the women play prominent roles that help to define how the men will end up seeing each other too.

This is just a fantastic movie. It's intelligent, thoughtful, well-written, and beautifully filmed. John Slattery, Gabrielle Union, and Jenna Malone all give exceptional performances. If you're looking for a movie full of violence and car chases, this isn't for you - but if you're looking for an insightful meditation on family, home, and growing up, you can't do better than In Our Nature. It's destined to become a cult classic, I'm sure of it.

I liked this movie, but it may just be the actors. I watched it several times. It could definitely do well as a weekly TV show. All the characters are like-able and the scenery is gorgeous. Everyone is attractive... It's a VERY SLOW-GOING MOVIE and the ending pretty much sucks, because it leave you hanging. But I still like it...but can easily see how some, especially guys might think it's a boring waste of time.

What's seems a little strange is how the film portrays some of the familial strains as being somehow abnormal, when they aren't. Perhaps the interracial, class and and age contrasts simply intensifies these strains, but the concerns while timeless seem very now. I could watch it again...but I wouldn't pay to do so.

Accurate title - meaning, self absorbed characters accept for dad's girlfriend. Per the usual "indie" film, no resolutions amongst these relations. Mostly flat dialogue and development - except for the part when the bear got in the house! Thank goodness for the bear - it woke my husband up!
