Far From the Tree

Far From the Tree

Theatrical Release: July 20, 2018

FAR FROM THE TREE is filmmaker Rachel Dretzin’s adaptation of author Andrew Solomon’s bestselling book, exploring how parents and children work to reconcile profound differences within the context of their families. An examination of the beautiful complexity of human experience, and inspired by Solomon’s own story of growing up gay, FAR FROM THE TREE features families who offer intimate access to how they experience surprise, resilience, sorrow, courage, hope, and joy. It is also a richly drawn portrait of the power of diversity, challenging our conventional understanding of normalcy and celebrating the limitless potential of the human spirit in all of its wondrous forms.
