    Still from Nuclear Family

The Film

Nuclear Family plunges into the rites of Texas football, cheerleading, and weddings to look at how boys and girls have traditionally matured into men and women. Each ritual has its own larger-than-life characters — the star quarterback's dad, the cheerleader mom, and an unexpected pair of young honeymooners. These Texans form a cinéma vérité metaphor for the American family, and shine a light on how we pass sexual identity on to our children.
