Movie Summary

Director:
Dennis Lee
Released:
2010
Rating:
Not Available
To an outsider, the Taylors are the very picture of the successful American family: Charles (Willem Dafoe) is a tenured professor on track to become university president, son Michael (Ryan Reynolds) is a prolific and well-known romance novelist, daughter Ryne (Shannon Lucio) is poised to enter a prestigious law school, and on the day we are introduced to them, matriarch Lisa (Julia Roberts) will graduate from college--decades after leaving to raise her children. But when a serious accident interrupts the celebration, the far more nuanced reality of this Midwestern family's history and relationships come to light.

Metacritic Score

  • 40

    The New York Times Manohla Dargis

    Mr. Lee gathers together a lifetime of hurt without conveying that there's something personal at stake.

  • 40

    Los Angeles Times Betsy Sharkey

    There's a strange sort of diffidence that seems to inhabit Dafoe and Roberts' performances, and the disconnect between the two Janes is simply insurmountable.

  • 40

    Variety

    Clumsy melodrama, which looks and sounds no better than an average made-for-cabler.
