About Family Rules
For some people, starting again is no option.
Kenny is adrift in the city, tormented by the scars and memories of his unique upbringing as a child star in the UK, chasing any addiction that can fill the void he carries at his core.
Increasingly unable to paper over the cracks, to numb himself with street corner narcotics, or build an abiding relationship with his junkie soul-mate Ivvy, he turns to stealing cars to provide momentary escape from his increasingly desolate life.
Estranged from his parents, Kenny has no hope or vision of a better future.
Until one night he steals a car from a gas station in New Jersey and is offered an unexpected, final opportunity for redemption; a radically different role to play.
Family Rules is an intense personal account of an invented life, where all the rules of family life are inverted, and of the damage done when the boundary between reality and television is truly no boundary at all.
Over its head and shoulder, I stared at the black and white circular mosaic: Imagine.
The kid’s hair was stuck to my face where I was sweating, strands of it in my mouth.
Some hippy freak was playing a Beach Boys song about five benches around the circle: Sloop John-B. There were flowers on the memorial, dry from being there all day, withered now, petal flakes dropped all around where the breeze had denuded dying blooms. I looked up to my right and there was the Dakota, where Lennon was shot and I was sitting holding a f***ing child I had accidentally abducted from f***ing New Jersey.
A kid who had grown silent in my arms.
As the hippie played Sloop John-B, I began to cry a little.
What was I going to do?
What the f***k was I going to do?
