Portrait of a family in crisis. This is a look at a family who are dealing with multiple members with substance abuse.
This is a largely verite portrait of a family trying to navigate with everything that comes with substance abuse. It’s a film that also just a portrait of a family struggling to remain together. Often raw, despite everyone being aware they are being filmed, this is a film that is going to echo for many people who will see themselves and their loved ones in the people on screen
This is a solid portrait that has much to say. Despite being similar to several other films, OUR AMERICAN FAMILY stands on it’s own legs by showing us a family that is probably a bit closer to the way many of us see our lives.
