Writer/director Freundlich takes us behind the scenes at a wealthy, WASPy family gathering. When four adult children, Warren (Wyle), Jake (Vartan), Mia (Moore) and Leigh (Holloman) return to the family home for Thanksgiving after a three-year absence, a lot of pent up emotions surface. Not much action occurs over the course of the weekend, just plenty of arguments, awkwardness and angst as the family unravels. Despite the Martha Stewart-like backdrop, this is one dysfunctional family. It's hard to feel sympathy for the characters given the privileged environment.
