Storyline

Successful Carolinian George Johnsten meets Chicago art gallery owner Madeleine at an electoral benefit art auction- love at first sight. Madeleine decides to meet a Southern original artist, so George seizes the opportunity to come along and present her to his North Carolina parents Eugene and Peg, drop-out brother Johny and his high-pregnant wife Ashley. Confronting the outsider soon opens a can of worms as emotions revive or emerge, like admiration and jealousy. Written by KGF Vissers

the family as a portrait in dark-brown color's
13 March 2009 | by komajasiSee all my reviews

Do we judge the "other". May we ? Can there be a objective impression of a family so drawn into closeness that is almost breathtaking? If we judge it is not the director's fault. He just rolls the camera and let us think we are watching a run of the mill family in NC. Do we recognize the drama? Is there a drama ? What will we call it? If we judge family life it is drawn from our own experience; or what we have seen from others friends etc. Let me end with saying that reality is often not what it seems to be. But by understanding we are able to come a bit closer to the vicissitudes of life.

Good day and good luck.
