What was your overall favorite film?
By Zach Gayne
From reading the premise of Manson Family Vacation, I was really hoping it would deliver as the standout film of SXSW, but admittedly, I was skeptical. Thankfully, the film surpassed all my expectations. Knowing the creative team behind it, I was anticipating a smart film, but what I did not predict was that it’d also end up being the most touching film I caught all week.
