Storyline

The story involves the Isaacs, a group of theater actors inhabiting a country home in Westchester County, New York. Present are patriarch George "Grisha" Isaacs (Jack Heller), his wife Vivien Cooper Isaacs (Diane Salinger), Vivien's brother Larry Cooper (David Proval), and family house guest Sally Brooks (Harriet Schock). As the tale opens, Grisha and Vivien's daughter, Pandora (Tanna Frederick) arrives from Manhattan on the heels of a painful and messy breakup. Her ex-boyfriend was an emotionally constipated jerk who couldn't deal with her vulnerabilities. Though Pandora adores her family, their chosen profession, and the emotionally-liberated lifestyle that it engenders, she also grapples with a tense, troubled relationship with older sister Betsy (Julie Davis); an icy, controlled businesswoman type who has distanced herself from this family of artists. Betsy turns up for a visit not long after Panda arrives, this time with her fiancé, Jimmy (Judd Nelson) in tow. In the days that ... Written by Larry

Do not be afraid to see this movie
9 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm not sure why this movie has received such universal abuse from reviewers.

Admittedly, it's not as inspired as some past Jaglom offerings (certainly not as inspired as "Hollywood Dreams", which I absolutely loved), but on a moment-by-moment basis it is certainly interesting and colorful enough to be worthwhile--contrary to what reviewers would have their readers believe.

I'm even more puzzled by how reviewers seem to have taken to bleating in unison that Jaglom has all along turned out nothing but tiresome nonsense.

Have they seriously forgotten such marvels as "Tracks", "New Year's Day", "Venice/Venice", "Last Summer in the Hamptons", and (the aforementioned) "Hollywood Dreams"?
