Storyline

When their father passes away, four grown siblings, bruised and banged up by their respective adult lives, are forced to return to their childhood home and live under the same roof together for a week, along with their over-sharing mother and an assortment of spouses, exes and might-have-beens. Confronting their history and the frayed states of their relationships among the people who know and love them best, they ultimately reconnect in hysterical and emotionally affecting ways amid the chaos, humor, heartache and redemption that only families can provide-driving us insane even as they remind us of our truest, and often best, selves. Written by Warner Bros.

This is Where I leave You...
20 September 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was a delightful refreshing take on the "dys" that constitutes the dysfunctional family. Humor is the antidote to life and pain, and there is both of this aplenty in this film. For those whose families are less than perfect or ideal, the resonance will run very deep and very close to home. The pure absurdity running rampant throughout the entire film reminds one of life, and how in the midst of the pure insanity that prevails, and the tug-of-war of the heart that causes both deep pain and mountains of bliss, there is a chord of love that bonds people together, through the messiest splatter of family relations. For anyone with a family who is broken or unraveled at the seams, this movie will make you laugh and make you cry. There are many times throughout when perfect, though barely audible sound bites of wisdom are spewed forth, and in the midst of the craze, it is this that will hit home and amplify the fact that life is a bizarre, crazy, comical mess of lunacy where love indeed does prevail. There are countless scenes one will relate to (and for which I did literally). This movies story-cast ensemble make for an irreverent and wickedly humorous film. Two thumbs up!
