1992

When their father dies unexpectedly, an eccentric family is drawn together. But old wounds and new revelations make the siblings' reunion a test of endurance.

Passed Away

Thrown for a loop by the unexpected news that Dad (Jack Warden) has suddenly gone to his reward, the grieving Scanlan clan are drawn together in a test of familial endurance that soon has them at each others' throats. As the eldest son, Johnny (Bob Hoskins) is tactlessly reminded that he's probably the next to go; daughter Terry (Pamela Reed) is the black sheep who hasn't told anyone that the marriage they all warned her against has broken up; thick-headed but nice looking younger son Frank (William Petersen) no longer has his father to cover for him; and Nora (Frances McDormand) comes home after going off to a cloistered convent and becoming a liberated nun who now runs an underground railroad for illegal aliens.
