Reuniting The Rubins
A father’s dream vacation is ruined by his aged mother who is hell-bent on seeing her dysfunctional adult grandchildren together one last time before she dies.
Lenny Rubins, (Timothy Spall from The King’s Speech) an up-tight lawyer, has to put his dream retirement on hold when his ailing mother (Honor Blackman from Goldfinger) 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 from the same planet: a survival-of-the-fittest/control-freak hard-nosed capitalist (James Callis from Battlestar Galactica), an outspoken argumentative eco-warrior committed to the cause (Rhona Mitra from Underworld: Rise of the Lycans) an outer worldly Buddhist Monk; and to cap it all a bible bashing born-again Rabbi!
They might not see eye to, quarrel, fight, and even be starting a war in Africa, but they are still family, and it is going to take a whole lot of soul-searching and sacrifice for all involved to come together in this heart-warming, comic, family drama that will have you thinking of your own family with a smile.
