The Oath

In a politically divided America, a man struggles to make it through the Thanksgiving holiday without destroying his family.
About The Film

Chris and Kai are hosting his family for Thanksgiving and their recognizably American checklist includes getting the turkey prepped, not making fun of his brother’s girlfriend and no talking politics. However, since there are only a few days left before a national deadline for citizens to voluntarily sign an oath pledging their allegiance to the country, Chris is finding that last rule a bit difficult. When two government agents show up saying they’ve received a tip that Chris is holding out on signing, family holiday tensions start to intensify considerably.

Writer, director and star Ike Barinholtz skillfully melds comedic family beats with political rage, spiraling in a way that will resonate with many people who still travel home for the holidays. Tapping into a welcome manic energy that is as much Howard Beale as it is Clark Griswold, Barinholtz has crafted a barnstormer of a directorial debut.
