Critic Reviews for A Family Affair
Lesnick's sharp eye for humor manages to keep things from getting too preachy.
Without the ready-made drama of coming out and identity struggle, gay romance can feel as flimsy and forced as its straight counterpart.
Suffers from inexperienced filmmaking and a self-absorbed lead character who fails to elicit any truly tangible degree of audience sympathy.
A serious romantic comedy of such strength and substance and so entertaining that it doesn't matter that its minuscule budget shows around the edges.
The pacing never accelerates beyond sluggish, and Lesnick's script is an awkward pile of gag lines.
Audience Reviews for A Family Affair
Lesnick, who over exaggerates her every facial gesture like a stand-up comic, would have benefited from having a director other than herself.
Sincere story, funny as well as touching. The acting is mixed though, it ranges from barely fair to good. Nicely written. Not always professionally made.
