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.

Very good, deep, emotional movie
6 October 2014 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

This is not at all boring! Probably the most touching movie this year. Each character has his/her own world, every little note of emotion is distilled with a touch of humor, and no one is better at that than Tina and Jason, as brothers and sisters. Plus there's Timothy Oliphant, who I totally adore. It's really about what life is, complex and complicated, and how we tend to mess it up even more. The rhythm is good, there's a sweet flow to it, just enough fun scenes and seriousness. Just let it go, sit down on a quiet evening when it's pouring rain outside, and enjoy the tears and smiles this movie will give you. It's human, and it feels good.
