 In the Family, dir. Patrick Wang, USA 2011, 169 min., English


Acclaimed by The New York Times on its 2011 release as ‘one of the most accomplished directorial debuts this year’, writer-director Patrick Wang’s first feature is a quiet epic of love, grief and the treacherous social politics of family life in middle America. In the Family set the tone for Wang’s future features – all of which are playing this week at the ICA.

His mother having died during childbirth, six-year-old Chip Hines (Sebastian Banes) has only known life with his two dads: Cody (Trevor St John), his biological father, and Joey (Wang), Cody’s new partner. The three of them live a happy life together in Martin, Tennessee – until an unexpected tragedy upends the family, causing a schism from which it could prove impossible to recover.
