The Perfect Family: Screen star Kathleen Turner talks religion and politics in collision with dysfunctional family values, in her role as a troubled Catholic matriarch in this ironically titled movie. Also, scenes from her touring subversive stage show, Red Hot Patriot: The Kick Ass Wit Of Molly Ivins. Turner is planning to take the show to DC just in time for the upcoming US presidential election, to make a political point of her own.

Future Weather: Actress Amy Madigan in conversation about her two new films. Virginia, in which she stars with off screen spouse Ed Harris, delves into problematic issues surrounding Mormonism, and possible intimations connected to Mitt Romney and the November presidential election. Madigan reflects as well on her role as the tough love grandmother of a disintegrating rural family in Future Weather, a story linking female survival on this planet with ecological survival of the planet itself. Also, refusing to honor Hollywood Blacklist informant Elia Kazan at the Oscars in 2000, and getting nude for a nonsexist cause in Playboy.
