US Premiere

Lenny Rubins (Timothy Spall) is an uptight lawyer finally beginning to relax on a much-needed retirement cruise when his ailing mother (Honor Blackman) emotionally blackmails him into a reunion with his estranged children. They may be peas from the same pod, but in Lenny’s eyes his grown children are certainly not from the same planet. There’s the hard-nosed, survival-of-the-fittest capitalist; the outspoken eco-warrior with a secret life; the Buddhist monk and, to cap it off, a strictly by-the-book, born-again Rabbi. It is going to take a lot of soul searching, sacrifice and hard-fought change for this family to overcome their quarrels, find the best in each other and unite in the face of crisis.
