Critics reviews

Class panic may be at the root of what happens in Inventing the Abbotts, but in this case the story and characters are far from simple, and they grow in density over the course of the deceptive plot. The film’s major strength is its carefully structured, finely tuned script by Ken Hixon, adapted from a short story by Sue Miller.
