Synopsis: Acclaimed independent filmmaker Atom Egoyan (The Sweet Hereafter, Exotica, Felicia's Journey) began his career with two micro-budget features. "Next of Kin" and "Family Viewing". In 'Next Of Kin', a young man is having problems with his family. Catatonically unhappy, the problems he undergoes video-therapy with his domineering parents. At the clinic, he comes across the videotapes of a troubled American family, who twenty years earlier gave up their infant son to a foster home. This sly comedy explores the unexpected outcome of Peter presenting himself as this family's long lost son. 'Family Viewing' won numerous awards at major film festivals and established Egoyan as one of the most striking new directors of our time. A home video camera becomes a central character in this black comedy about a family teetering on the edge. These two features are enhanced by Egoyan's comments, as well as his first short films. For aspiring filmmakers as well as cinephiles, this collection of early work is a great intorduction to this Academy Award nominated writer and director. This disc features the movie NEXT OF KIN.

Special Features: Director Commentary & Biography, Short Films By Atom Egoyan, Behind The Scenes Featurette, Full Frame Formatted To Fit Screen
