Overview

An average American family suffers from a grave and unexpected loss that forces its members to confront past issues in this all-star ensemble drama from acclaimed director Dennis Lee Jesus Henry Christ. Julia Roberts stars as Lisa Taylor, the wife of a college professor, Charlie Willem Dafoe, living in the Midwest. As the tale opens, the aging couple are proud parents of two grown and reasonably successful children, Michael Ryan Reynolds and Ryne Shannon Lucio. Then tragedy strikes: not long after Michael arrives in town visiting from Manhattan, Lisa perishes in a fatal car accident, leaving the family bereft of its matriarch. As the devastated Taylors feebly attempt to cope with their loss, tensions resurface that have long boiled beneath the surface between Charlie and Michael; meanwhile, Michael's estranged wife, Kelly Carrie-Anne Moss, turns up at the funeral to pay her respects to Lisa and gradually begins making amends with Michael. When Michael announces to the family that he's planning to publish a memoir about his childhood, Lisa's younger sister, Jane Emily Watson, grows horrified that it will unearth devastating long-buried skeletons from the family's past; moreover, it seems that prior to her death, Lisa was guarding one major secret of her own that lingers just out of view and threatens to destroy everyone's sense of familial security when it finally comes to light.
