The Discoverers

Opens Friday, May 16, 2014 Synopsis: Burned-out history professor Lewis Birch (Griffin Dunne) and his two teenage kids (Madeleine Martin and Devon Graye) are en route to an important conference when their extended road trip takes an unexpected detour in this bittersweet tale of family dysfunction. The trip was supposed to be the catalyst that reinvigorates Lewis' career, but when his estranged father Stanley (Stuart Margolin) skips out to join a Lewis and Clark historical reenactment trek, the conference takes a back seat to making sure this troubled family doesn't fracture beyond repair. David Rasche and Ann Dowd also star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Griffin Dunne, Madeleine Martin, Cara Buono, Stuart Margolin, David Rasche Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
