Emily (Olesya Rulin) is a 16-year-old who is growing incredibly frustrated with her parents' lack of parenting skills. Her bread-winning mother, Samantha (Kristen Chenoweth), is a career-focused business executive who never turns off her work; while Emily's father, Duncan (Matthew Modine), is a painter who seems totally unflustered by the creative (and financial) rut that he has been stuck in for the last several years. Emily and her three siblings (Eddie Hassell, Robbie Tucker and Chloe Bridges) all have much different methods of attempting to earn their highly-distractable parents' attention, but nothing seems to work. Diretcor Benjamin Epps' Family Weekend takes place during a very crucial time for Emily. The film begins as Emily competes in a speed-jump-roping competition at her high school, which leads up to the speed-jump-roping regional finals the following day. Emily is totally dedicated to speed-jump-roping, so much so that most of her classmates mock and tease her about it. »
