3.0 out of 5 starsworth a watch
Verified purchase
not especially profound, but worth a watch. fun to watch this family, with its own unique dysfunctions, and 3 very different daughters, each trying to navigate their way through personal and professional life. some of the relationships defy credibility, but you forgive that for the sake of an interesting film. the acting is fine, although some questionable casting decisions.

5.0 out of 5 starsThe characters’ interactions keep us totally engaged in the fun of this slightly dysfunctional family

Family Blues is a light hearted, comically irreverent , thought provoking film about a quirky family that wrestles with balancing life choices while following their bliss. The characters’ interactions keep us totally engaged in the fun of this slightly dysfunctional family, while their self- discoveries give us a gentle nudge to re-examine our own priorities. A totally enjoyable must see!

This was written 20 years ago but the themes are so contemporary and still feel relevant: mindfulness, life balance, gender expectations, environmental justice. I felt connected to this quirky talented family.

4.0 out of 5 starsI'm recommending this family to mine
Verified purchase
Interesting look at family - individual but universal - with all it's messiness and joy. As relevant today as when it was apparently made. Makes me want to visit the Hudson Valley.....

Left a huge smile on my face. I loved how zany and crazy and real the family was. A young Jane Krakowski was luminous. Definitely worth watching.

delightful movie, good character development - certainly portrays the struggle a couple can have about careers, many face a similar situation. Loved the grandfather - father character and the Mom- grandma character.
