Come out and support Chicago independent cinema with Michael Glover Smith’s Comedy/drama feature film: “RELATIVE”

As various members of the Frank family come together for a college graduation party in Chicago, they find their bonds being tested, and strengthened, in surprising ways.

CAST: Wendy Robie (Twin Peaks), Francis Guinan (Steppenwolf Theater Ensemble member), Cameron Scott Roberts (The Walking Dead), Melissa DuPrey (Grey’s Anatomy), Clare Cooney (Chicago Med), Keith D. Gallagher (Orders), Emily Lape (Mercy’s Girl), Elizabeth Stam (Bleed American).

Written and directed by Michael Glover Smith (https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1902686/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1).

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with writer/director Michael Glover Smith & actress Emily Lape.

Featuring a brilliant and eclectic cast of talented veterans and relative newcomers, this is 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

“His intimate, actor-driven dramas are set not merely in the real world, but in specific locales, with dialogue testifying to the fact that both the characters and the place have histories that still weigh on them in the present. The movies are ragged and imperfect, alternate awkward and sublime, but when they hit, they strike deep and tear you up.” (*** stars out of four)

Matt Zoller Seitz, RogerEbert.com
