A Sort of Family

A woman's adoption plans are thrown into chaos when she's asked for $10,000 by the biological mother's family.


Why watch this film?

The protagonist, Bárbara Lennie, carries all the tension of the movie in her incredible performance. 'A Sort of Family' messes with anyone's head, especially by telling the story of an adoptive mother trying to keep her son. It is a strong psychological drama, masterfully executed by Argentinean director Diego Lerman.
