Anne Renton’s new film THE PERFECT FAMILY
, which has garnered much acclaim, playing in last year’s Tribeca Film Festival. The film will open in Los Angeles and NYC on May 4, and then in San Diego and additional cities on May 11. I think PFLAG will find that the movie falls in line with its mission, and I hope might want to work with me to find ways to be involved in the release.
Suburban supermom Eileen Cleary (Academy Award® nominee Kathleen Turner) is the ultimate Catholic, and when she’s nominated for the coveted Catholic Woman of the Year Award at her local parish, it looks like she’s about to get the plaque to prove it. Only one final test remains—introducing her family to the church board for the seal of approval. Now, she must face the truth about her nonconformist family—a truth she has been glossing over for years. With her gay daughter (Emily Deschanel) about to marry her life partner, her unhappily married son (Jason Ritter) having an affair with the local manicurist, and her own marriage to a recovered alcoholic pulling at the seams, Eileen decides to take action, ramping up her meddling to hilarious new heights. This heartfelt dysfunctional family comedy boasts a memorable performance from Turner as the conflicted and comical matriarch, while newcomer director Anne Renton keeps the pacing taut and crafts an honest, modern family tale that asks us what truly makes a family perfect—how it looks on the outside, or how it feels on the inside.
