Happy New Year, Colin Burstead
There’s no leftover Christmas cheer as the seriously dysfunctional Burstead clan reluctantly gather for a New Year’s bash planned by eldest son Colin. He’s chosen a dismal seaside mansion that looks like the Addams family just vacated it. Singular director Ben Wheatley composes scenes simmering with impending doom as the clan’s resentments are left to fester. The black humor is all in good sport and, oddly enough, great fun to savor. Standouts in the ensemble cast are Sam Riley (“Maleficent,” “Zombie”) as Colin’s feckless younger brother and Charles Dance (“Game of Thrones,” “The Jewel in the Crown”) as their cross-dressing Uncle Bertie.
