Probably the worst parenting I've ever seen from someone—one of the most dysfunctional families on film.
Wasp, by Andrea Arnold, from the very beginning of the film, chaos rules the life of Zoë, the mother of four young children. She is crass and uncensored; she lives with all hell loose, and it is reflected in the lives of her children.
Arnold's social realism is harrowing and frightening, depicting life as the most unpleasant thing in the world. The responsibility of living—wanting to be released from the constrains of society’s rules and restrictions—it is too much for Zoë to handle.
Zoë's foul-mouthed and irresponsible behavior is horror-inducing. Her family's dynamics are left to utter desolation, without discipline or rules. What is amalgamated is a house divided against itself—unified, but not standing.
Wasp is a frightening and disturbing look on the desperation of a woman and her family without displine or restrain.
