Synopsis

Lynn was married to Paul, but they split up on bad terms, and Lynn took custody of their daughter Alice while Paul got their son Dylan. Years later, now that Dylan is getting married, Lynn is attending the wedding at her parents' estate, with her younger sons Elliot and Ben in town. Elliott is a cynical substance abuser and Ben prefers to look at life through a camera than confront the world head on. Meanwhile, Alice deals with her anxieties through cutting; Dylan has only infrequent contact with Lynn; Lynn is fearful of Paul and his second wife Patty; Lynn's mother, Doris, blames her daughter for her family's many troubles; and her father, Joe, is in poor health and hardly cares about what's happening around him. To the surprise of no one, all this has left Lynn an emotional wreck, and she's not sure just how she's going to get through the day.

Saul Naumann (Gere) is a somewhat controlling Jewish husband and father. A Religious Studies professor at UC Berkeley, Saul wrote his graduate thesis on the Kabbalah. Because he was a devout Jew, his wife Miriam (Binoche) converted to Judaism when they married, and he nurtured his son Aaron (Max Minghella) as a traditional studious Jew like himself. When Eliza (Flora Cross) wins her class spelling bee, they embark on a course of Kabbalah study to help her win. The film follows the family and the spiritual quests upon which they journey, in large part because of Saul: Miriam's attempt to make herself whole, Aaron's religious uncertainty, and Eliza's desire to be closer to her father.
