Storyline

Wealth can't spare three male generations of the dysfunctional Jewish New York Gromberg family grief or grim reality. However successful in life, Alex never felt pleasing pride or proper parental support from sprightly patriarch Mitchell, who sarcastically imposes his own values and priorities on everyone and everything. Alex starts despairing that his modern permissiveness may ruin his own bright firstborn, college-boy Asher, unlike adoring kid-brother Eli. A dorm-drug-bust pushes things to the limit -- or beyond?

Spectacular!
23 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

Wonderful dramedy, great performances! Kirk Douglas is an outstanding comic actor, but Diana Douglas steals every scene she's in with the ultimate in charm and grace. I guess it's the Douglas family's "On Golden Pond", with hints of their real family history and dynamics. I can't say enough marvelous things about this movie; I give it a "10"!
