Escape from Happiness (1991)
Escape from Happiness is a ferociously dark and wildly comic vision of the struggles of one very idiosyncratic family to achieve wholeness, peace, and stability in the face of a complex and adversarial world. Walker’s viciously funny satire cuts straight to the heart of urban anxiety. Three adult sisters join forces with their mother to solve a crime. With criminals and cops closing in on their home, and a father they do not trust, time is running out for this family.
