"Sam (Pine), is a twenty-something, fast-talking salesman, whose latest deal collapses on the day he learns that his father has suddenly died. Against his wishes, Sam is called home, where he must put his father’s estate in order and reconnect with his estranged family. In the course of fulfilling his father’s last wishes, Sam uncovers a secret: he has a 30-year-old sister Frankie whom he never knew about (Banks)." (Official Synopsis)

Fans of Pine's eyebrows will enjoy all the bushy furrowing, but otherwise, there are more important things to cry about.

Alex Kurtzman's debut feature can emotionally manipulate you before the narrative house of cards collapses and things go from sweet-and-sour to full-on NutraSweet.

The performances, especially Ms. Banks's Frankie and Ms. Pfeiffer's Lillian, partly compensate for the holes in a story whose timing is hard to swallow.

I like smart movies about smart people, and enjoy it when most of the facts are on the table and we can contemplate them together.
