The dramatic comedy â€œThis is Where I Leave Youâ€ is directed by Shawn Levy, and based on the hilarious and poignant best-selling novel by Jonathan Tropper. It features a starring ensemble cast including Golden Globe winner Jason Bateman (â€œArrested Developmentâ€); Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner Tina Fey (â€œ30 Rockâ€); and two-time OscarÂ® winner, multiple Golden Globe honoree and 2013 Emmy Award nominee Jane Fonda (â€œKlute,â€ â€œComing Home,â€ HBOâ€™s â€œThe Newsroomâ€).
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 provideâ€”driving us insane even as they remind us of our truest, and often best, selves.
