Following a limited theatrical release, The Perfect Family, will get its nationwide premiere with a June DVD release by Virgil Films & Entertainment.

When nominated for ‘Catholic Woman of The Year’, Eileen and her family are placed under the microscope and put to the test by her parish, church members, and each other. While the competition heats up at church, Eileen realizes she must also find a way to keep her dysfunctional family away from their sinful ways.
