With the follow-up to his charming debut Chalk, director Mike Akel has proved himself to be a filmmaker very much interested in the casual, intimate moments of the everyday. A dramedy about two brothers (one straight, one gay) driven apart by their opposing worldviews, An Ordinary Family introduces us to the adult children of the Biederman family as they come together for their annual vacation to relax and dig up unresolved issues. If Chalk was a playfully funny film, then An Ordinary Family is a thoughtful and bittersweet one, with Akel again emphasizing an easy rapport between his characters that feels remarkably akin to real life.
