Reuniting the Rubins #

Released 10/21/2011

Description: An up-tight lawyer, Lenny Rubins, (Timothy Spall), has to place his dream retirement on keep when his ailing mother (Honor Blackman) emotionally blackmails him into reuniting his estranged kids for a Jewish holiday. They may be peas from the same pod, but in Lenny's eyes, his grown-up kids are certainly not even from the same planet: a ruthless control-freak and hard-nosed capitalist, an outspoken, argumentative eco-warrior committed to the cause, 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 fight in Africa, they are still family. It is going to take a entire lot of soul-searching and sacrifice for everyone to come together in this comic drama. Written by monterey media inc.

Broth of a Boy Reviews:

It is ironic that a movie produced in Irish studios by an eminent Irish producer could wallow in Irish stereotypes dispensing an over abundance of whimsy.Poor Barry Fitzgerald in his last movie looks rather out of things.Tony Wright is a bump Titus English television producer who finds happiness and a tv programme. It is just bearable


Director GEORGE POLLOCK. Screenplay: Patrick Kirwan, Blanaid Irvine. Based on the scene enjoy "The Large Birthday" by Hugh Leonard. Photography: Walter J. Harvey. Camera operator Eric Besche. Movie editor: Henry Richardson. Art director: Allan Harris. Assistant director: John "Pinky" Green. Melody composed and conducted by Stanley Black. Production supervisor: Robert C. Liles. Sound recording: L. B. Bulkley. Producer: Alec C. Snowden. An Emmet Dalton Production, filmed at Ardmore Studios, Eire. Released in the U.K. by British Lion/Britannia on 22 February 1959, in Australia by British Empire Movies on 24 October 1959, in the U.S.A. by Union Movies on 27 December 1959. Fresh York opening at the 55th Road Playhouse: 26 December 1959. Registered: February 1959. "U" certificate. 6,941 feet. 77 minutes.SYNOPSIS: Into the quiet Irish village of Ballymorrissey roars good- looking Tony Randall (Tony Wright), in his tiny car. Puzzled by the deserted appearance of the place, he learns from Tim (Dermot Kelly), the local waiter, that the villagers are all in the parish hall preparing for the large birthday of Patrick Farrell (Barry Fitzgerald), whom Tim describes as "an old devil of a boy who's been up to no nice all his life". COMMENT: Despite Pollock's routine direction and the fact that the comedy material is stretched a tiny thin in the second half, this is a charming and delicious tiny Irish rural comedy. Barry Fitzgerald is in fine fettle, Miss Thorburn is an pretty heroine, and the help cast, drawn from the popular Abbey Players, gives some rich and engaging impersonations of different rustic "types". The photography is sharp, the scenery pleasant, and credits smooth.


Barry Fitzgerald's screen career came to an end with the release of Broth Of A Boy, an independent movie done by the Abbey Theater players. Fitzgerald's career came full circle with that one as he was a member of that honored theater group method before he did any film.And the 77 year old Fitzgerald played a centenarian and then some as the oldest boy in the globe who BBC producer Tony Wright discovers while on vacation in Ireland. What a nice storyline he's stumbled into and he wants a large tv special. But Fitzgerald is one crabby old cuss and he's got his own reasons for not making a large deal about the birthday. And he also assaults the owner of a trout stream where he and his somewhat mentally challenged son have been poaching for years. Will the large tv unique come off.For that you have to watch Broth Of A Man and while its not a nice movie it's a whimsical comedy that relies on the considerable stage stealing talents of Barry Fitzgerald and his colleagues from the Abbey Theater.
