Review: Home Sweet Hell, 2015, dir. Anthony Burns

“Once upon a time, Katherine Heigl had movie stardom within her reach. Now, she’s the lead on NBC’s State of Affairs following a string of commercial duds in the early 2010s. There’s a whole article to be penned about Heigl’s rise and fall in Hollywood since online backlash first put her in the pillory in 2007 – that’s what you get for having an opinion on your own movie roles – but let’s instead take the long view and stare in awe over how the sum of her successes and failures have led her to Anthony Burns’ black comedy Home Sweet Hell. The punishment scarcely seems to fit her alleged crimes of celebrity.” (Via Movie Mezzanine.)
