An innovative and fresh short doc, 23 April 2003
Author: jenniolson from United States

This fresh and innovative short doc offers a quirky portrait of an American family with traditional "family values." Becky and Donna are a nice lesbian couple with a house in the suburbs, who run an unusual family business -- cleaning up death scenes. Director Eva Saks takes us into their world with a great sense of style and humor that makes this one of the most enjoyable short documentaries in recent memory. Family Values played at the Sundance Film festival, won a student Academy Award, and was the juried Grand Prize Winner of the Second Annual Short Movie Awards.
