THE FAMILY FANG is a comedy-drama film directed by Jason Bateman and written by David Lindsay-Abaire, based on the 2011 novel of the same name by Kevin Wilson. Premiered at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival to rave reviews, the film stars Bateman, Nicole Kidman, Christopher Walken and Maryann Plunkett.
Adult siblings Baxter (Bateman) and Annie (Kidman), scarred from an unconventional upbringing, return to their family home after an unlikely accident. When their parents (Walken and Plunkett) — performance artists famous for elaborate public hoaxes — suddenly go missing under troubling circumstances, Baxter and Annie investigate. Unsure whether it’s foul play or just another elaborate ruse, nothing can prepare them for what they discover.
