Just the Right Amount of Violence

Jon Bang Carlsen, Denmark, 2013

83 min.DK/Documentary

For many families in the sprawling suburbs of Los Angeles, their peaceful middle-class existence is just a facade. What lies beneath is sheer domestic turmoil: Teens addicted to drugs, breaking the law and engaging in violent outbursts, and parents at their wits' end. Interventionists, like Evan "Bullet" James and Dana "Hodges" Goller, specialize in entering these suburban homes during the night ripping troubled teens from their beds to transport them, against their will, to a reform school in Utah. Crafted in the director's signature hybrid style, the film is about the complicated relationships between parents and children and how the wounds we incur within our families can seem the hardest ones to heal.
