Reuniting the Rubins trailer shows odd cast
I would have never thought of pitching Timothy Spall, Rhona Mitra, Honor Blackman, James Callis and Blake Harrison together in a film but then it seems to fit with the story itself which sees a disparate group of family members gathering together and fighting their way through their old wounds and issues.
It's a story we've seen time and time again but when it's done right it's still a good one, and it doesn't look like they're far from the mark with this trailer.
An uptight lawyer, Lenny Rubins, (Timothy Spall - The King's Speech), has to put his dream retirement on hold when his ailing mother (Honor Blackman - Goldfinger) emotionally blackmails him into reuniting his estranged children for a holiday gathering. They may be peas from the same pod, but in Lenny's eyes, his grown-up children are certainly not even from the same planet: a ruthless control-freak and hard-nosed capitalist (James Callis - Battlestar Galactica), an outspoken, argumentative eco-warrior committed to the cause (Rhona Mitra - Underworld: Rise of the Lycans), an outer-worldly Buddhist Monk; and to cap it all, a bible bashing born-again Rabbi! While they might quarrel, fight, and perhaps even be starting a war in Africa, they are still family. It is going to take a whole lot of soul-searching and sacrifice for everyone to come together in this heart-warming and comic family reunion that will have you thinking fondly of your own.
