The Screen Guide

Moses Bornstein, writer of children's books and unappreciated comedian, lives with his wife and their two children. When his more successful brother, Ben, comes to visit Moses' behaviour becomes increasingly eccentric, outrageous and hypocritical. The events of the next three days are full of wry and comically black incidents and finally blow the lid off the Bornstein's strained household. Moses and Ben discover a new understanding as brothers. And Ben stops insisting that Moses goes running every day.
