Elevator Pitch A widower with three difficult daughters goes to the family home on Rhode Island for Christmas, and meets a woman to whom he is attracted in a bookshop. But as the family congregate he finds that she is his younger brother’s girlfriend. The two are still attracted to each other despite them going on a blind date where he meets a glamourous woman from their past. But how will it all work out?
Content Mostly time spent in the parental home on Rhode Island as everybody interacts. No nudity or sex. Some energetic dancing. A bit of driving about in Dan’s middle-aged Mercedes estate.
A View Everybody is very charming, even the children, most of whom were apparently local recruits. And the house was nice and is real (and available for rent). Maybe a watch while you are doing something else.
