Product Overview

Magazine writer Patrick (Rockmond Dunbar) is everything a family could hope for -- he's handsome, polite and a big success in the Big Apple! But when he returns home to his traditional, rural southern family, two worlds collide with a sudden jolt! As one shocking truth after another is revealed, Patrick and his eccentric family struggle to respect one another in this poignant family drama. With a riveting all-star cast that includes Loretta Devine and Jenifer Lewis, Dirty Laundry is as hilarious as it is heart-wrenching.

Review What is Dirty Laundry? It's Soul Food plus In & Out as if directed by Tyler Perry. As a large, loud, funny, small-town African-American family comes to terms with the closeted gay man in their midst, there's plenty of laughter, recriminations, and tears to go around. It's a jam-packed 100 minutes, never earth-shattering, but certainly not boring...Upscale New York magazine writer Patrick (Rockmond Dunbar) finds his comfortable life interrupted when Gabriel (Aaron Grady Shaw), the ten-year-old son he didn't know he had, shows up unescorted at his door. With no other choice, Patrick takes the boy back to his southern hometown, where he is something of a prodigal son, having basically abandoned his family in order to live life as a gay man in the big city. His chain-smoking force-of-nature mother Evelyn (Loretta Devine) isn't exactly happy to see him, and neither is his sister Jackie (Terri J. Vaughn) or his jealous brother Eugene (writer/director Maurice Jamal). They feel betrayed by him and haven't yet accepted his homosexuality. Eugene, for one, is prone to calling Patrick "fancy," a code word for everything he hates about this guy who used to be his brother...The extended family and townsfolk, who love to dish about each other in church pews and at big barbecues, are equally suspicious of Patrick, whom they remember as Sheldon. The very fact that he's changed his name is cause for more whispers. Things really come to a head when Patrick's white twink-with-a-heart-of-gold boyfriend Ryan (Joey Costello) shows up and starts to win people over with his oblivious honesty and sense of fun...Dirty Laundry breaks a bit of new ground by telling its coming-out story in the context of a southern black community, but other than that, it's run of the mill, with a few good laughs along the way. Enjoy it for its good intentions and for the strong performances from Devine and Lewis.
