Synopsis: The loud, contentious siblings of the Castellano family maintain their tradition of macaroni and meatballs at Sunday dinner following the recent death of their parents. But when Don comes out as vegan, it sends his two brothers and sister-in-law into an offended spiral of confusion. What ensues is a battle of brother vs. brother, tradition vs. progression, meatballs vs. quinoa.
To me, this movie is about a family being forced to grow up. They’re dealing with pain. And they’re at a tipping point where they have to move on from the life they’ve known forever. And they hate change. But they’re doing it together. And no matter who’s sitting at the table, THAT is the thing that will never change. Because they won’t let it.
