This is Where I Leave You

Author
Paula Weinstein, Shawn Levy, Jeffrey Levine

Staff Comment
The father of the Altman tribe has died and the family convenes in their home town for the funeral. Dad's last wish was that they sit Shiva (stay under the same roof together) for the full seven days. This is odd because they weren't really observant Jews, but the four adult children and various spouses go along with it. Hilarity Ensues, Life Lessons are Learned, and Changes are made. I have both read the book, and watched the film numerous times, very enjoyable.
