Description
A family's dirty laundry get aired out in public, and not everyone is happy about it in this dark comedy from director Barry W. Blaustein. Nathan (Ben Schwartz) is a writer who has recently published a best-selling novel that's being made into a major motion picture. Nathan is feeling very good about himself, but his siblings aren't so happy for him -- the book is a very thinly disguised version of his family's wildly dysfunctional history, and nearly everyone close to him can see themselves in its key characters. Nathan's older sister, Cheri (Sarah Silverman), a struggling actress, is so outraged that she's considering taking her brother to court, especially since the film version of the book is being shot outside her apartment and her father's new (and much younger) girlfriend (Alicia Witt) has been cast in the role patterned after her. Nathan's book has also become a thorn in the side of wildly irresponsible Joel (Rainn Wilson), who is on the run from loan sharks, and Jack (Michael C. Hall), whose career as an architect is crumbling almost as quickly as his marriage to Laura (Judy Greer). When the family gathers to celebrate the 70th birthday of their father (Ron Rifkin), along with their mother (Lesley Ann Warren) and her new husband (Nicholas Hormann), it makes for an evening with explosive potential. Peep World also features narration by comedian Lewis Black. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

display_descriptionAt a dinner celebrating their father's 70th birthday, tensions among four siblings explode, thanks to the success of the youngest son's new novel, a thinly veiled portrait of the family. The bestselling expose reveals the oldest, 'responsible' son as a porn addict, the daughter as a catty drama queen, and the third son as a living disaster with a loony plan to change his life around. And things aren't exactly going so great for the hot writer due to a bad reaction to a certain men's medication.
