Its beautiful ending, along with natural and convincing performances, helped “In The Family” to stand out as a humanist, realistic, and unaggressive tale about a good man that was forced to go against a family that he considered his own.

Patrick Wang's debut film is a beautifully realized tale of a gay man who finds himself embroiled in a bitter custody battle for his young son after his partner, the boy's biological father, dies suddenly of an unexpected illness. Even at nearly 3 hours long, the film never overstays its welcome. It's a powerful and understated celebration of family in all its forms. The last shot is absolutely killer.
