Palace ★★★½

The movie follows an interesting cross-section of people with different types of fractured relationships with their respective families. Palace is reminiscent of a Richard Linklater type of fly on the wall film where the characters' inner problems propel the story against a lived in setting. It goes to some interesting places and leaves a good impression of memorable characters in different moments in their lives.
