A rare example of a grown-up story compellingly told from the perspective of children, "The Playroom" is a modest gem. This `70s-set drama depicting one tumultuous night in a suburban family's lives benefits from the admirably subtle approach by director Julia Dyer, working from a sensitive screenplay penned by her late sister Gretchen, with their brother Stephen serving as one of the producers. Unlike the dysfunctional one depicted onscreen, this family unit works together perfectly.
The title refers to where the Cantwell children _ teenage Maggie (Olivia Harris) and younger siblings Christian (Jonathon McClendon), Janie (Alexandra Doke) and Sam (Ian Veteto) _ gather to tell each other stories by candlelight.
