Find your family.
It tells the story of a struggling man who, after flying home to L.A. for the funeral of his estranged record-producer father, discovers that the will stipulates that he must deliver $150,000 in cash to a 30-year-old alcoholic sister he never knew existed, and her troubled 12-year-old son.

I love this movie. It is a movie about family, finding it and what comes next. The story was wonderful and complex and honest as it carried us on this difficult journey of discovery laden with emotion. It is a human story. It did not come easy and each character was multidimensional and well crafted in the story....basically real....believable. Pacing was perfect: changing and appropriately so. The story was completely character driven and as the characters developed and changed so did their choices and thus to story. I felt the pain, disappointment, anxiety, ease, and happiness of the characters. I shed a few tears and did not sob but I am sure that is because I did not allow myself to be fully enveloped by the story. There were a few flaws in the movie but it is still a very good drama. I strongly recommend this movie.
