Reuniting the Rubins
Independent Films, Film Profiles, Family movies, Art
An uptight lawyer, Lenny Rubins, (Timothy Spall â€“ The King's Speech), has to put his dream retirement on hold when his ailing mother (Honor Blackman â€“ Goldfinger) emotionally blackmails him into reuniting his estranged children for a holiday gathering.
They may be peas from the same pod, but in Lennyâ€™s eyes, his grown-up children are certainly not even from the same planet: a ruthless control-freak and hard-nosed capitalist (James Callis â€“ Battlestar Galactica), an outspoken, argumentative eco-warrior committed to the cause (Rhona Mitra â€“ Underworld: Rise of the Lycans), 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 heart-warming and comic family reunion that will have you thinking fondly of your own.
