Homecoming is an interesting look at a maladjusted, dysfunctional family, headed up by Max ( McShane), the father. In his house dwells his younger brother Sam (McKean), and two of his children: Lenny (Esparza), the town procurer, and Joey, a boxer wannabe. When Max's eldest boy, Teddy returns home after six years away, with his new wife Ruth, tensions escalate and strange behavior ensues.
