First official trailer for dramedy titled Because We're Family is out, yet another dysfunctional family mess of a film to enjoy!
The film stars Angela Stern, Christine Nyhart, Josh Drennen, Tyler Meridith, C. Thomas Howell, Milo Stern, Milana Stern, and Victor Wells.
The film follows three siblings, Dallas, Kourtney and Belinda, that come together during the holidays after the unexpected death of their mother. They reunite and fight over how to deal with the cremation of their mother.
While Dallas and Kourtney have been coping with their mother's death for over a month, their youngest sibling, Belinda finally returns from Tibet in time to collectively witness their mother's cremation.
The three then return to their childhood home to live and grieve together for the holidays. All dressed up to take their kids out for trick or treating on Halloween, Belinda surprises the siblings by announcing that she is planning to take their mother's ashes to her home country of Trinidad per her final wishes.
Dallas and Kourtney are sure she should stay right on the mantle in their family home and think their sister is up to her usual outlandish ways. After a few weeks of arguing leads to a Thanksgiving blowout, Dallas kicks Belinda out of the house, and she is forced to spend time down the street in a run-down hotel.
Because We're Family is co-directed by Christine Nyhart Kaplan and Angela Stern, both making their feature directorial debut with this project. The screenplay is by Angela Stern. The makers will unveil the release date soon.
