Emily Deschanel has a 'Family' Plan

Emily Deschanel is set to topline Anne Renton's indie pic "The Perfect Family," opposite Kathleen Turner.
From producers Cora Olson and Jennifer Dubin, "Perfect Family" also stars Jason Ritter, Michael McGrady and Richard Chamberlain.

Renton will direct from a script by Claire Riley and Paula Goldberg.

Storyline revolves around a devoutly Catholic wife and mother (Turner) who has been nominated for one of the church's top awards. She goes about trying to prove she has the "perfect" family, refusing to accept them for who they are.

Deschanel plays the daughter, a successful lawyer who is a lesbian. The daughter, who is five months pregnant, struggles when it comes time to telling her mother the truth.

It's a good thing she still works in films as well. Sounds like a demanding role. I hope that it will be released, not like her other film "That Night" which cannot be found anywhere.

Seriously! I would kill to see "That Night." That trailer looks amazing. "That Night" was a short film, though, and this is feature-length with a pretty great cast. We should be able to find it. Anyway, I'm excited! More Emily is always a good thing.

Looks like it'll be a very interesting movie! I look forward to seeing it -- whether at an indie movie theatre or netflix :-) Go Emily!
