Dirty Laundry (2006) Poster

A modern-day prodigal son story with a twist. It follows Patrick, a magazine writer, who seems to have the "perfect life," until one day, there is a knock at the door. On the other side stands a secret that brings him face to face with the traditional southern family he hasn't seen in over 10 years.

Dirty Laundry was hysterical! It certainly puts you in the mindset of a typical Southern family gathering. There were definitely some hints of Tyler Perry influence.

Loretta Devine is always a joy to watch. She carries herself with a great deal of charisma and dignity. Jenifer Lewis is the grand-dam of divas! She carries herself in a manner that dares someone to challenge her authority.

Dunbar and Jamal certainly carried themselves in a very classy, self assured manner. The entire cast was well chosen to give an even balance, varied perspectives, and display of skills and talents.

I am even more impressed by the boldness of the production team to step out as independents and produce such a powerful product. Bravo! Hope to see more from you!
