Movie Reviews

Very accurate

"I am brca1+ and I was very moved by this documentary. Anyone BRCA+ or thinking about being tested should see this. I have also had all of my closest friends and family watch this, it explains it better than I can. Highly recommended."
Must see!

"In the Family is powerful and poignant at the same time. It is an effective documentary about the human dimension of genetic testing, its complexities and effects. Through forceful images and moving stories of women that could very easily be you or me, filmmaker Rudnick explores the multi-faceted implications of testing for mutations. I highly recommend this film, and applaud Kartemquin for yet another effective social critique."
