The Lears

World-renowned cutting-edge architect Davenport Lear, nearing retirement, summons his dysfunctional children to a weekend family retreat in one of his architectural masterpieces. When they hear the bombshell that he has decided to marry his younger personal assistant that Sunday, it sets off an explosive and funny round of devious behavior and conflict as each of them jockeys for position borne of self-interest, greed and jealousy. In the end, the film raises fundamental questions about the nature of love, sexuality, family relationships and honesty, demonstrating that what lies below the surface is often very different from outward manifestations.
