Storyline

The Red Robin is a tense psychological thriller unveiling the troubled past, conflict-filled present, and uncertain future of a remarkable family, the Shellners. 75 year-old Dr. Nathaniel Shellner's led an extraordinary life as a psychiatrist working with traumatized patients fleeing war zones, earning himself a Nobel Prize for his work. After having one child, Leonard (48), with his wife, Lillian (72), the Shellners elected to adopt the remainder of their family from the camps where Dr. Shellner worked. Ultimately the Shellners incorporated five children from all over the world into their family - Tommy (36), Julie (38), and Harry (37) As Dr. Shellner lies on his death bed on a frigid, icy day on the fringes of New York City in suburban New Jersey, the family convenes at the house where the couple raised the children for a final, bittersweet farewell to a sensational and inspiring public figure.

Sizzling and Thrilling!

Diabolical-Engrossing!-Entertaining!

Director Michael Wechsler weaves a masterful tale that reminds us of how thrillers should be. Judd Hirsch's performance is so powerful you simply cannot take your eyes off the screen.

Caroline Lagerfelt with a class and style rarely scene these days enhances both Mr. Hirsch's performance and Mr. Wechsler's production so much so that you crave her presence when she is absent from the screen.

With the film world flooded at the moment with "independent movies" it is with a breath of pleasure to take The Red Robin Ride. This is a textbook example of what audiences today are looking for from Indeoendent Directors.

The Red Robin Winner of Multiple Awards around the Globe is an incredible "Old School" thriller!
