THE PERFECT FAMILY
Monday 6th August 3:30pm Screen 1
Director: Anne Renton
The Perfect Family is the story of Eileen Cleary, a devout wife and mother who has just been nominated for Catholic Woman of the Year. She and her family must undergo an inspection by the local bishop, a test which she expects to pass with flying colours until her daughter breaks the news to her that she is gay, engaged and pregnant.
A dramedy with laughs, a heart and a Hollywood cast including Emily Deschanel (Bones), Jason Ritter (Parenthood) and the legendary Kathleen Turner, The Perfect Family is a film about a mother's love and the lengths to which she'll go to understand herself and her family. This film is also a lovely companion film to Friday's Mother Tongue, another film about a woman's attempts to accept her lesbian daughter.
