Fanny, Annie & Danny movie scene

Jill Pixley and Jonathan Leveck are siblings in Fanny, Annie & Danny.

Fanny, Annie & Danny is a 2010 independent comedy-drama film that picked up some solid buzz on the festival circuit.

Everyone’s worst fears are realized when three adult siblings are forced by their powerful mother (Colettte Keen) to reunite for a holiday dinner. A developmentally disabled 39-year-old living in a home for dependent adults, Fanny (Jill Pixley) is the oldest of three children and has long been a source of strain and resentment within her family. Her jittery sister Annie (Carlye Pollack) has spent her life taking care of her, while their successful but elusive brother Danny (Jonathan Leveck) has thus far escaped responsibility. When the trio comes together for dinner, it’s not surprising that everyone’s worst fears are realized.

Written and directed by Chris Brown, Fanny, Annie & Danny raised eyebrows at a slew of international film festivals, picking up awards at the San Antonio International Film Festival, the New Jersey Film Festival and the Fort Lauderdale Int’l Film Festival.

The movie received a limited but well-reviewed release to U.S. theaters in April 2010, with The New York Times designating it  as a Critics’ Pick.

There are no bonus features on the DVD.
