Storyline

After a violent incident in Lucy's public school, her atheist parents Stuart and Alison decide to find her a safe 'traditional' school. The only one they can afford is St. Mary of the Veil, run by nuns whose 'preference' for Catholic families is de facto exclusivity, given the waiting list. So they pose as devout, and get his murky mate Eddie to find them a priest they can 'bribe' for a parish reference, while Lucy is genuinely converted. It works, but when Stuart overhears a dark secret things take a tragic turn. Written by KGF Vissers

RomaFictionFest winner
11 July 2007 | by (ITALY) – See all my reviews

Perfect parents just won the RomaFictionFest, last week. I was part of the jury and we voted and awarded the movie , the main actor and the screenplay. At the end the movie won the Maximo award above all the other winners. When we viewed the movie for the first time, in the competition, the all jury stood up in front of the director, the actress and the producer, who were present in the theater, and clapped the hands for almost 3 minutes!! Great movie! I am proud of being part of the jury who voted for it. At the end of the award ceremony the actors and the directors were very kind to get back on the stage and take pictures with the jury. I hope this movie will be soon aired in Italy, I am recommending all my friends to watch it and I will buy the DVD as soon as it gets released. In a country like Italy where the Church tries to control everything it could be a lesson.
