Fresh. Funny. Family. The follow-up to his landmark film "Ski Trip" (2004), writer-director Maurice Jamal's "Dirty Laundry" (2006) explores the often mis-understood "don't ask, don't tell" policy when it comes to homosexuals in African-American culture. After cutting ties with his eccentric Southern Baptist family, gay New York City writer Patrick returns home when a 10-year-old boy shows up at his doorstep claiming to be his son. Down South, he's a fish-out-of-water all over again as he comes out to hisclueless family and butts heads with their country-fried ways, and his confession brings forth a number of shocking secrets. At once hilarious and poignant, this dysfunctional family comedy is a must-see! Co-starring Loretta Devine.
