An incredible cast led by Jason Bateman and Tina Fey star in Shawn Levy's comedy drama about a dysfunctional family forced to "sit Shiva" for a week (the traditional mourning period in Judaism) after their father passes away. The mouth-watering ensemble is endlessly watchable, even if the story doesn't take them anywhere particularly surprising. Bateman is the eye-rolling focus of the film that rests on a trio of hilarious performances, and he has a rather touching chemistry with Rose Byrne, too, playing a local girl. Adam Driver's wild child has the most fun, closely followed by Jane Fonda as the uncomfortably frank matriarch, but Tina Fey gets a lot of the best lines as the eldest sibling. You can't help but be drawn in by these empathetic, funny performances and the overarching message that there is no such thing as "normal". If only the script had been a little more daring, this could have been something very special indeed.
Premiere. Four siblings return home to attend their father's funeral, and are reunited with their overbearing mother. Each brings with them unresolved personal crises, and as they observe the Jewish ritual of Shiva, they find themselves forced to deal with each other's secrets and mistakes. Comedy drama based on Jonathan Tropper's novel, starring Jason Bateman, Tina Fey and Jane Fonda.
