The life of playwright Jazmine Faries is appropriately fraught with drama and tension. So many decisions to be made. Who will produce her work? (Herself). Who will play the autobiographical lead role? (Herself). Who will play her love interest, Matthew McConaughey? (Her brother). This breathtakingly vivid documentary begins as a portrait of a young artist who happens to have Down syndrome but quickly expands its horizons as far as the eye can see, as it introduces us to Jazmine’s immediate and extended family, along with a rich cast of characters made up of her friends, neighbors, and acquaintances. Delicately directed by Patrick Longstreth, Iron Family is a detailed, warm and funny story of an Upper Peninsula community. Winner of a 2021 Golden Badger Award. (BR)
