Storyline

Dominique, a cold-hearted professor suffering from kidney failure, attends the Smith and Wesson family reunion to approach estranged sister, CeCe, for a transplant. However, deep seeded wounds from catastrophic childhood events remain unresolved between the two sisters. At great emotional expense, CeCe confronts past demons to find forgiveness and healing. Struggling with vulnerability, Dominique must do some soul searching to address personal shortcomings in order to save her own life. The story also involves Dominique's brother, Richard, and his daughters, Kayla and Elsa. Richard abandoned Kayla when she was an infant and she regards Elsa as a scapegoat for her resentment. Kayla's unbridled aggressions explode at the family picnic before she learns that her mom, Richard's vindictive ex-wife, had lied about him. Colorful relatives attending the reunion in Hot Springs, Arkansas add color and controversy to the affair. As family members uncover buried truths and love, family politics ... Written by Anonymous

Excellent
21 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was an excellent movie. The theme, story line, dialog and actors/actresses were great. I think all families should see this movie. Especially if there are misunderstandings or conflicts within the family. This movie brings home the message that family should stick by each other and be faithful to each other. It sends the message that families should resolve their differences and not let them linger and fester. This movie also shows that the truth should always prevail among family members. Reunion strongly portrays family values, love and forgiveness.It mirrors real life. That is, things will not always be calm and peaceful but love and family values conquers all. This movie also shows the value of a true dedicated and committed matriarch. The writer, producer and actors are all to be commended.
