Director Anne Renton‘s new film The Perfect Family will be making its debut at the Tribeca Film Festival next month. Here’s the synopsis from the fest’s website:
In this sweet family drama, a devout Catholic (Kathleen Turner) in the running for the coveted Catholic Woman of the Year award must prove that her family actually conforms to the image of “the perfect family” as envisioned by the church, an image she’s put forth with considerable effort her whole life.
The problem? Her daughter, played by Emily Deschanel, is a lesbian — and she’s getting married to a woman (played by Angelique Cabral). This thwarts Kathleen’s character’s plans, and it’ll likely be tragic watching her attempt to figure out how to maintain her “perfect” Catholic family.
There’s no trailer yet, but there are a few promo photos available for a sneak peek at the film:
Besides being directed by out filmmaker Renton, the script was written by Claire V. Riley and out screenwriter Paula Goldberg (Out at the Wedding, In Her Line of Fire). With a powerhouse cast and crew, The Perfect Family should be close to perfect.
The Tribeca Film Festival runs in New York City April 20 – May 1 and tickets are on sale now.
