Instant Family (Rated “PG-13)

A “feel good” emotional movie about Foster Parenting, based on director, Sean Anders’ real life story of adopting three children from foster care.

Mark Wahlberg (Pete) and Rose Byrne (Ellie) are DIY home renovation flippers who are missing something in their lives. They decide to foster three siblings, a rebellious teenager, Lizzy, Isabela Moner, her clumsy brother, Juan, Gustavo Escobar, and the younger temper tantrum sister, Lita, Julianna Gamiz.  It’s not as easy as it seems, as case workers, Octavia Spencer and Tig Notaro, help the couple through their many trials and tribulations.

Keep a box of tissues nearby; this movie will make you laugh and cry. -Deb
