WHAT IS IT... A fam­ily drama star­ring Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrne WHY GO... For a for­get­table but heart-warm­ing flick DI­REC­TOR Sean An­ders RE­LEASE DATE Nov 29 (18TC) A TRUE STORY based on writer-di­rec­tor Sean An­ders’ ex­pe­ri­ences of fos­ter­ing three sib­lings with his wife, In­stant Fam­ily is a gen­tle dram­edy that looks to pull at your heart­strings, make you laugh and pro­vide a real in­sight into what it takes to open your fam­ily unit to kids who need a home.

Hus­band and wife Pete and El­lie (Mark Wahlberg and Rose Byrne) pre­dictably strug­gle to cope with the young­sters and end up way over their heads. Will they end up learn­ing the real mean­ing of love and the im­por­tance of fam­ily? We reckon so. The leads are both adept at pulling off com­edy and drama, so this seems ideal for them, while strong sup­port comes from Oc­tavia Spencer and Tig No­taro. Dar­ragh Mur­phy
