From first-time writer/director Elizabeth Chomko, WHAT THEY HAD centers on a family in crisis.

"One of the year's best indie dramas, one that should hit home with a wide range of viewers sure to relate to the achingly authentic family dynamics on display."
Gary Goldstein - LOS ANGELES TIMES

"It's an actors' feast, and a genuine calling card for Chomko, primarily an actress (a strong one) before "What They Had," but now very much a writer-director coming into her own."
Michael Philips - CHICAGO TRIBUNE

"Chomko refreshes the formula with vividly grounded writing that never forces her actors to summarize where they've been, emotionally speaking, or where they're going."
Ella Taylor - NPR
