Watch kids give a terrific performance. Donna and Russ Barring are also highlights. Enjoy its charm and sweetness (a little rough around the edges). A nice and enjoyable film. The film focuses on unexpected connections found between profoundly different family members. Also, it gives a positive spin to dysfunctional families, making the point that love is the most important element, and no experts can sway the "truth." It pokes fun at the 'expertise' of social services and of our family values: what's normal, isn't, and what's odd, is sometimes just normal quirky human behavior. This is a comedy with a dramatic underbelly. -J.
