Instant Family

Recently I attended a special screening of Instant Family. It’s an adorable film about adoption.

A couple find themselves in over their heads when they adopt three children. When Pete (Mark Wahlberg) and Ellie (Rose Byrne) decide to start a family, they stumble into the world of foster care adoption. They hope to take in one small child but when they meet three siblings, including a rebellious 15 year old girl (Isabela Moner), they find themselves speeding from zero to three kids overnight.

INSTANT FAMILY is inspired by the real events from the life of writer/director Sean Anders and also stars Octavia Spencer, Tig Notaro and Margo Martindale.

The film is definitely a tear jerker. It opens your eyes to what that world of adoption looks like. Great film for the entire family. In theaters on Friday, November 16th.

Watch this featurette:


I asked the director about cultural issues that arise during the adoption process. A scene in the film addresses, “Should white couples only adopt white children”. Here’s his answer.

Octavia Spencer Instant Family
As usual, Octavia’s character is hilarious! She’s the uncut voice of reason.
