The ShowRoom presents the New Jersey Theatrical Premiere of writer/director Michael Glover Smith’s Chicago-made RELATIVE on Saturday, February 4, via Newcity/Chicago Film Project.
“A wickedly funny, occasionally poignant and authentic-to-its core drama/comedy about three eventful days in the life of a totally relatable extended family” (***1/2 stars out of four) – Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun-Times
Produced by Chicago Film Project (Jennifer Reeder’s KNIVES AND SKIN), this Chicago-made dramedy stars Wendy Robie (TWIN PEAKS) and Steppenwolf Theater Ensemble legend Francis Guinan as the parents of a family at a crossroads. How will the Frank family handle separations, new romances, and empty nesting following the college graduation of Benji (THE WALKING DEAD’s Cameron Scott Roberts), the youngest member of their clan? Time, love, family reunions and online proclivities test all of the characters in this ensemble film. Written and directed by Michael Glover Smith (MERCURY IN RETROGRADE).
