Storyline

An up-tight lawyer, Lenny Rubins, (Timothy Spall), has to put his dream retirement on hold when his ailing mother (Honor Blackman) emotionally blackmails him into reuniting his estranged children for a Jewish holiday. They may be peas from the same pod, but in Lenny's eyes, his grown-up children are certainly not even from the same planet: a ruthless control-freak and hard-nosed capitalist, an outspoken, argumentative eco-warrior committed to the cause, an outer-worldly Buddhist Monk; and to cap it all, a bible bashing born-again Rabbi. While they might quarrel, fight, and perhaps even be starting a war in Africa, they are still family. It is going to take a whole lot of soul-searching and sacrifice for everyone to come together in this comic drama. Written by monterey media inc.

Timothy Spall...shines!
24 March 2011 | by (Yorkshire, England) – See all my reviews

A really good first feature from Yoav Factor. For my money, Tim Spall and Honor Blackman steal the show. I didn't think a comic drama about a Jewish mother and son would float my boat - but this is far from so simplistic. it's about family, warts and all, with a liberal sprinkling of love and affection. It may not set the movie world alight - no SFX, no 3D, no explosions or sell-on games opportunities... but it is well worth a look.

Someone on here said 'A British Woody Allen'... Woody Allen in the days of Hannah and Her Sisters, Manhattan, Annie Hall....now there's something to aspire to!!
