Family Viewing

Egoyan, Atom
The deeply fractured family depicted in FAMILY VIEWING consists of Stan, a mild sexual sadist; Sandra, his live-in mistress and video bondage partner; and his 17-year old son Van. Van’s deep resentment of his father becomes the catalyst of a plot to free his beloved grandmother from an old age home and establish a new, blissfully “happy” family. Oscar-nominated filmmaker Atom Egoyan (The Sweet Hereafter) weaves an ironic tale of characters who seem most alive when they are captured on videotape. Winner of Best Canadian Feature Film at the Toronto International Film Festival. Winner of an Interfilm Award at the Berlin International Film Festival.
