family and friends?
29 March 2003 | by (Brisbane, Australia) – See all my reviews

The Family Way gives an honest look into two generations of a working class family - each generation trying to live up to other's expectations.

The sexuality of more than one male character is questioned and the way that topic is handled is what makes this film unique and memorable.

Deep, beautifully performed, romantic, dramatic and very entertaining.
