The three generations of fathers and sons in Argentine director Daniel Burman’s Family Law struggle for connection --to their jobs, to their homes, and, most importantly, to each other. Perelman Sr. is a successful lawyer, and his daily routine leaves little time for anything other than his practice. His thirtysomething son Ariel is also a lawyer, but he works for the state -- much to the chagrin of his father, who wants him to join his firm. Ariel’s two-year-old boy Gastón just started preschool. Each of the Perelmans has problems communicating with the others. Yet this sweet, funny, and unassuming film makes clear that despite their many differences, the distances among them aren’t so great.
