Tyler Perry's The Family That Preys
Source: Catholic News Service
Sudsy African-American domestic saga, set in Atlanta, charting the unlikely friendship between a white real-estate tycoon (Kathy Bates) and a hardworking and devout diner owner (Alfre Woodard) whose ambitious married daughter (Sanaa Lathan) is having an affair with the tycoon's son (Cole Hauser), who connives to take over his mother's business. As written and directed by Tyler Perry, the drama unfolds at a leisurely pace, often telegraphing the mostly shallow characters' schemes long before they are revealed and, though the restaurateur's Christian faith is overt throughout, the morally problematic climax is treated neutrally. Adultery theme, a suicide, brief domestic violence, tacit acceptability of divorce, some sexual references and occasional crass language. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III—adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13—parents strongly cautioned; some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
