REUNITING THE RUBINS
Director/Yoav Factor
United Kingdom, 2011 (97 minutes), English

Lenny Rubins is an uptight lawyer, eager to relax on a much-needed retirement cruise, when his ailing mother (Honor Blackman) corners him into a reunion with his estranged children. The members of this family don’t seem to come from the same planet. There’s the successful, hard-nosed capitalist; the outspoken eco-warrior with a secret life; the silent Buddhist monk; and the strictly-observant born-again rabbi. Is the crisis they face enough to motivate this family to the sacrifice, soul-searching, and change needed overcome their quarrels and find the best in each other, so they can unite around the seder table?
