Image“In The Family” (opening in Toronto and Vancouver on June 1, 2012) is a powerful drama about child custody. Patrick Wang plays Joey whose 6 year old son Chip (Sebastian Banes) is taken away from him when Joey’s lover (and Chip’s biological father) Cody dies. The moving and realistic film explores the meanings of family, kinship and parental rights, and how the meanings shift when faced with sexual and racial differences.

I speak with Writer/Director Patrick Wang and co-star Sebastian Banes (age 8) about this film that manages to be challenging (in both form and topic) and moving. Image
