Movie Info

Maggie (Anjelica Huston) and Ben (Bill Pullman) are middle-aged siblings who don't care for one another. Although Ben, a perpetual screw up, sold his share of their father's estate to his sister years ago, he returns hoping to build a house and a new future. With an acquaintance (Julia Stiles) in the Bureau of Land Management ready to falsify records of the original sale, he hashes out a plan to regain the property while smoking joints with good friend Gerry (David Morse). Maggie must decide how to react as sibling rivalries renew. Trouble marks the second feature film for Pulitzer Prize-nominated playwright and novelist Theresa Rebeck ("Mauritius," "Seminar"); and also serves as a reunion for Huston and Brian d'Arcy James, who both appeared on the Rebeck-created NBC cult TV musical "Smash."

Critic Reviews for Trouble

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (6)

Writer-director Theresa Rebeck has nothing to offer this masterly cast but a paycheck for their participation in her lightweight dysfunctional-siblings family feud.

Movies that have no reason to exist seem to be opening on a weekly basis. On its way to home video, Trouble, I'm sorry to say, is one of them.

Top Critic

Rambles amiably toward its unsurprising conclusion with some bits of humor.

Oct 4, 2018 | Full Review…

It's a film that begins as a raucous rural comedy and deftly evolves into a poignant and reflective, yet still wryly amusing, story of what becomes of a family.

Oct 4, 2018 | Full Review…

Purportedly a comedy, this sophomore feature from the playwright Theresa Rebeck is so dismally unfunny that the descriptor should come with quotation marks.

Oct 4, 2018 | Full Review…

An enjoyable, if slow-moving, tale of decades-long sibling conflict.
