Far from the Tree 2017
1h 33min | Documentary | 20 July 2018 (USA)
Based on the NY Times bestselling book by Andrew Solomon, Far from the Tree examines the experiences of families in which parents and children are profoundly different from one another in a variety of ways.
Documentary about families with kids that are ‘different,’ based on the book by the same name. Issues include autism, down’s syndrome, a dwarf, and a child killer. The author is gay, and used that issue and his family reaction as the springboard to examine other families with ‘different’ children. I saw this at a proper theater and it was pretty good, but in a PBS documentary kind of way, and did not stand up as a feature.
