An all-star cast plays a dysfunctional, grieving family in This Is Where I Leave You. When the patriarch of the Altman family passes away, his dying wish is for his four grown children to return to their childhood home and live under the same roof for one week.

A synopsis and trailer for the film can be found below.

“When their father passes away, four grown siblings, bruised and banged up by their respective adult lives, are forced to return to their childhood home and live under the same roof together for a week, along with their over-sharing mother and an assortment of spouses, exes and might-have-beens. Confronting their history and the frayed states of their relationships among the people who know and love them best, they ultimately reconnect in hysterical and emotionally affecting ways amid the chaos, humor, heartache and redemption that only families can provide— driving us insane even as they remind us of our truest, and often best, selves.”
