MODERN FAMILY takes an honest and hilarious look at the composition and complexity of modern family life. Take for example Phil and Claire, two parents who want to have that open, healthy, honest relationship with their kids. It’s not always easy, especially when you have a teenage daughter who’s growing up too fast, a too-smart-for-her-own-good middle daughter and a rambunctious boy. Then there’s Jay who is having a bit of a mid-life crisis. Jay has found a much younger wife Gloria, who has become the center of his world. She’s a passionate and sassy divorcee who comes with a hopelessly romantic son named Manny. Mitchell and his partner Cameron have taken the next step by adopting a child together named Lily. Cameron has a big personality and a flare for the dramatic, whereas Mitchell is the more serious of the two but they balance each other out. Life it seems is neither tidy, politically correct or in any way predictable. Yet it’s just such surprises that make things so interesting in this warm, sometimes twisted embrace of the modern family.
