StorySuburban supermom Eileen Cleary is the ultimate Catholic, and when she’s nominated for the coveted Catholic Woman of the Year Award at her local parish, it looks like she’s about to get the plaque to prove it. Only one final test remains—introducing her family to the church board for the seal of approval.
Now, she must finally face the truth about her nonconformist family—a truth she has been glossing over for years. Her gay daughter Shannon is about to marry her life partner. Her unhappily married son Frank Jr. is having an affair with the local manicurist. And Eileen’s own marriage to a recovered alcoholic is pulling at the seams...
This heartfelt dysfunctional family comedy boasts a memorable performance from Academy Award® nominee Turner as the conflicted and comical matriarch, alongside a bright ensemble cast including Richard Chamberlain and Michael McGrady. Newcomer director Anne Renton keeps the pacing taut and crafts an honest, modern family tale, and writers Claire V. Riley and Paula Goldberg infuse just the right amount of seriousness and levity into their script, reminding us that family is never truly perfect.
