Stockard Channing stars as a renowned art historian, whose tell-all memoir about her past as a 1960s radical activist and political protester fails to mention her two sons. Neglected in print, as they were when they were when growing up, her sons harbor deep-seated resentments which flare up when they gather to celebrate their mother’s birthday.
