Description Eileen Cleary has just been nominated for Catholic Woman of the year when her family drop a bombshell. Over the dinner table she discovers that not only is her son leaving his wife and children for the local beautician, but her daughter is 5 months pregnant and about to marry her girlfriend. Desperate to win the award, Eileen is conflicted between shame over her family and still desiring to do the right thing by them. Unable to accept either of their choices her family begins to splinter, with even her husband threatening to leave. Ultimately this is a feel-good movie and Eileen proves herself to be a person worthy of both the award and her family.

    So, pro gay hollywood stuff and a swipe at Christians as usual. Not my money, and from what I hear, hollywood is not doing too good right now.

    Who ever thought Chandler's father would have a problem with someone being gay?

    They should have made the mother a lesbian too and had her join the daughter and daughter-in-law for a plural marriage. Liberal. Progressive. Sexy. All women should be lesbians. It's more natural than monogamous hetero marriage.

    Kathleen, please consider playing the very strong role of my mother in a movie version of my book, "Cancer Time Bomb: How the BRCA Gene Stole My Tits and Eggs." You would be perfect in this role! JoelleBurnette(dot)com
