Brought together by the death of their father, the Altman family is forced to sit in shiva to mourn their loss. For the first time in ages Judd, Wendy, Phillip, Paul, and Hillary (Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Adam Driver, Corey Stoll, and Jane Fonda) are forced to spend quality time together, digging into each other’s personal lives, exposing each other’s weaknesses, finding direction and purpose. Each family member will have tough decisions to make when they return to their normal lives; hopefully, as a family they’ll have the strength to grow in positive directions? thisiswhere Written by Jonathan Tropper and Directed by Shawn Levy humor, sardonic wit, sarcasm, and good old sibling rivalry rings true in this honest yet absurd look at the inner workings of a modern Atheist/Jewish family. And, while Bateman is definitely the focal point, it’s the ensemble as a whole that sings, delivering the laughs rapid fire (sometimes so fast a pause and rewind button is necessary to catch everything). Well played gang, well played indeed. Here’s your feel good film about dysfunction, relax it’s all perfectly normal. This is Where I Leave You is rated R.
