In The Family

In a heartfelt story woven around child custody, two-Dad families, loss, interracial relations, the American South, and the human side of the law, the nature of what it means to be in a family is explored with ambitious and rewarding nuance.

In the Family

“What an extraordinary movie! It is hard to describe it without giving away important plot pieces – it concerns a gay couple, the son of one of them, and the blood, ties, emotional bonds, and parental instincts that engulf them and their loved ones when a crisis occurs. It centers around one of the couple, a Chinese-American man with a southern accent (the movie takes place in Tennessee) played by author/producer/director Patrick Wang. This character is unprepossessing, honest, riveting in a quiet way. And that is the sound and tone of the picture: quiet. It is not for everyone. Wang is not afraid of silence and not afraid of stillness. If you are serious about movies, see it!”
— Netflix member review

December 2014 Events

Friday, December 12

MOVIE NIGHT  8:00 PM at Frank and Nicolas 1420 15th Street, NW, Washington, DC

Vicious Vicious Season 1 Marathon (7 episodes – 22 minutes each)
The hit British comedy series Vicious tells the story of partners Freddie (Sir Ian McKellen) and Stuart (Sir Derek Jacobi), two men who have lived together in a small central London flat for nearly 50 years. Constantly picking each other apart and holding onto petty slights for decades, we can still see underneath all their vicious codependent fighting they have a deep love for each other.

Frank asked us to let you know that some of the streets in the area have parking for residents only on one side. Be sure you do not park on the residents’ side.
