Storyline

Meeting old friends can be enlightening, fun, dangerous and painful. Just ask Jake Burns, a trial lawyer and published novelist who is called upon to organize such a meeting. Ten years after the death of his wife, Janie, he fulfills her last wish, reuniting their closest friends from Yale one last time. As undergraduates in the early 1980s, Jake and Janie belonged to one of the university's "secret societies," and Jake sends out invitations to the other members, most of whom haven't seen each other since Janie's funeral. Once the best and the brightest of the Ivy League, the group that arrives in New York is now, by most standards, an accomplished and esteemed bunch. Entrepreneur/mogul Lloyd arrives with his actress girlfriend Minerva, who hopes to penetrate her new lover's distant persona; Barnaby and his wife Emily are at a crossroads in their marriage, he battling alcoholism and a stalled career, she frustrated that her dreams as a writer have never been realized; Sadie is a former...

Excellent storyline and dialog throughout!
22 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I completely disagree with the review by Anonymous comparing "Reunion" with the "Big Chill". The Big Chill was somewhat phony with everything resulting in a happy ever after ending. Reunion lays bare human emotion and interaction whether it be pleasant and agreeable or not. Sometimes, we think we know ourselves and others and it is a shock to see that maybe we don't. Reunion holds back the main element of the story until almost the end and even though it may not be completely surprising, it has a very dramatic effect on the characters and on the story itself. If you are looking for a pleasant love story, you will be disappointed in Reunion. Emotions are raw here with petty jealousies, anger, frustrations, accusations and downright arrogance taking center stage. It is a talk fest, yes, but with real emotion and very good dialog displayed throughout the film. It is depressing but at the same time will make you think about who you really are and make you wonder about your place among friends and others. If you like raw character emotion and dialog this film is for you. If you are looking for problem resolution and a fuzzy, warm conclusion - look elsewhere!
