Storyline

An up-tight lawyer, Lenny Rubin, (Timothy Spall), has to put his dream retirement on hold when his ailing mother (Honor Blackman) emotionally blackmails him into reuniting his estranged children for a Jewish holiday. They may be peas from the same pod, but in Lenny's eyes, his grown-up children are certainly not even from the same planet: a ruthless control-freak and hard-nosed capitalist, an outspoken, argumentative eco-warrior committed to the cause, an outer-worldly Buddhist Monk; and to cap it all, a bible bashing born-again Rabbi. While they might quarrel, fight, and perhaps even be starting a war in Africa, they are still family. It is going to take a whole lot of soul-searching and sacrifice for everyone to come together in this comic drama. Written by monterey media inc.

Captures family dynamics in a nutshell
16 March 2011 | by mrsconsultingSee all my reviews

The balance between characters and family dynamics is integrally shaped to reveal the struggles, hopes and aspirations of family life in modern times. A father sets out to engage his grown children only to find that time has moved on. Time has revealed a divergent set of character traits within the family, making reunion an interesting and feisty experience. A blend of subtle humor and underlying tensions invoke moments of joy and angst, persistently generic to family life. Unique characteristics of the Rubin families makes reunion though an interesting and captivating ride. The production colorfully mixes location and context with flow to ensure a coherent delivery of semantic meaning and purpose.
