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.

Wow... Embarrassing
23 June 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Followed this film online as it went through the motions and ultimately changed its name. Waited years to see it, as I was extremely interested in the subject matter, and was seeing a lot of good reviews. Reluctantly talked my wife into watching it with me one Friday night, and unfortunately we ended up laughing at it and questioning the plot twists. Its dialogue is pretty bad, and the human interaction is alienating in its manufactured tension. Overall, it was cringe-inducing watching the actors on-screen. I gave this film an extra star because it wasn't filmed on a hand-held camera. But I would urge people to stay away from this because it is just so remarkably bad.
