Press Releases


September 20, 2011 - Los Angeles - In a deal with Kaleidoscope Film Distribution monterey media is proud to announce the acquisition of all North American rights to "Reuniting the Rubins" a clever comedy starring Timothy Spall (Harry Potter Films, The King's Speech, Sweeny Todd, Enchanted), Honor Blackman (Goldfinger), James Callis (Bridget Jones Diary, Battlestar Galactica), Rhona Mitra (Underworld: Rise of the Lycans, Nip/Tuck, Boston Legal), Blake Harrison (The Inbetweeners) and Hugh O'Connor (Chocolat, My Left Foot). Jewish Film Festivals will welcome the "Rubins" in October 2011 prior to the winter theatrical release planned for select theatres nationwide.

About Reuniting the Rubins
Lenny Rubins, (Timothy Spall - The King's Speech) an up-tight lawyer, has to put his dream retirement on hold when his ailing mother (Honor Blackman - Goldfinger) emotionally blackmails him into reuniting his estranged children for a Jewish holiday.

They may be peas from the same pod, but in Lenny's eyes, his grown up children are certainly not from the same planet: a survival-of-the-fittest/control-freak hard-nosed capitalist (James Callis - Battlestar Galactica), an outspoken argumentative eco-warrior committed to the cause (Rhona Mitra - Underworld: Rise of the Lycans) an outer worldly Buddhist Monk; and to cap it all a bible bashing born-again Rabbi!

They might not see eye to, quarrel, fight, and even be starting a war in Africa but they are still family and it is going to take a whole lot of soul searching and sacrifice for all involved to come together in this heart warming, comic, family drama that will have you thinking of your own family with a smile.
