Malou Reymann's semi-autobiographical first feature, winner of the Big Screen Audience Award at the Rotterdam Film Festival earlier this year, presents a nuanced and timely portrait of family life. A Perfectly Normal Family tells the story of Emma, whose home life suddenly becomes more complicated when her father Thomas (Mikkel Følsgaard, 'A Royal Affair', the Oscar-nominated 'Land of Mine') announces that he has chosen to identify as a woman. Witnessing Thomas become Agnete, Emma struggles to hold on to the relationship they had, whilst acknowledging her parent's feelings for her have not changed. Reymann's drama sensitively explores the issue of trans identity from the wider perspective of domestic life and in doing so questions the very essence of what we mean when we talk about family. ★★★★ "A Perfectly Normal Family is an individual’s story, one that is both personal and convincing, and which deserves to be seen" - The Movie Waffler ★★★★ "concentrates on the minutiae of everyday life and how they can be torn apart by a circumstantial and emotional change... an endearing spectacle from start to finish" - The Upcoming ★★★★ "a touching and affecting movie that provides a different perspective on this sort of story, illuminating a family’s reaction to such an enormous upheaval" - Filmhound ★★★★ A Perfectly Normal Family packs in the small details in a texturally rich drama, seen from Emma’s perspective, adjusting to the new status quo without the emotional filters of adulthood. Never melodramatic or sentimental, Reymann’s debut is a mature and measured experience of modern sexuality. - Filmuforia "A gentle, open-hearted drama" - Cath Clarke, The Guardian
