Skeleton Twins premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January and won the festival prize for Screenwriting in the US Drama category. Early reviews from critics at the festival have been overwhelming positive with Hader and Wiig praised for their portrayals of people on the edge. Amber Wilkinson (Telegraph) said both actors once more demonstrated they are well adept at comedy roles and Geoff Berkshire (Variety) claimed Wiig's performance as "a woman quietly falling completely apart" is impressive.

Skeleton Twins is released in the US on 19th September.
