Happiness (1998) IMDb

Seen in 2019.

Miserable assholes.

Black comedy. A very rare combination of strong comedic writing and acting with absolute sincerity in the treatment of child sexual abuse. Still more rarely, the combination works. The comedy is not a side effect of shying away from the horror into irony; it is actually possible to have both without trivializing real horror or dishonouring real victims.
