About this movie

Nick Morgan (Jay Duplass) has it all: a loving family, a beautiful home and a successful law practice in Los Angeles. His estranged brother Conrad (Linas Phillips) has nothing but a backpack. When Conrad shows up for a surprise visit, all he wants to do in town is go to the infamous Manson Family murder sites. Reluctantly, Nick joins him and ends up on a road trip that leads the brothers into the modern-day world of Charles Manson.
Written and directed by J. Davis, MANSON FAMILY VACATION explores the lives of two brothers: one who’s devoted to his family; the other who’s obsessed with The Manson Family. Executive produced by the Duplass Brothers, the film also features Tobin Bell (Jigsaw from the SAW movies), Leonora Pitts and Davie-Blue.

Interesting familial conflict presented in a unique story plot. I was pleasantly surprised by each of the characters though was slightly let down by some of the acting. This might not be the comedy you're looking for, but it's certainly one I'd recommend.

It made me see some things from a different angle. I think the most important thing about this film is that it shows Charles Manson as a human being instead of a monster, a celebrity or a scapegoat.

Granted its from the lesser brother -KIDDING, hahah- but seriously, just the fact that its original content and well conceived and executed ; means your already way ahead of the game in todays world . 100 percent ,the Duplass brothers are as effective separately as well as together and are responsible for some of the best and thought provoking entertainment present . For this alone I am in thier debt.. ~j 'Lovits'
