A pair of seriously solid performances from both leading men, but Table for Five doesn't contain much sincerity beneath the surface.

Audience Reviews for Table for Five

Tearjerker. Very well written and directed by Robert Lieberman, this is a touching story of a father trying to rekindle his relationship with his children by taking them on a cruise to the beautiful countries of Athens, Rome, Greece, Italy and Cairo, Egypt. Jon Voight plays the father that tries to reach out to his children but finds out, he doesn't know how to connect with them. I couldn't stop crying at some parts of the movie due to some very emotional and touching scenes. You will not be disappointed with this drama. A must see.
