The disappearance of poet Beverly Weston (Shepard) sees the Weston siblings (Roberts, Lewis, Nicholson) return home to support their mother (Streep). Cue squabbles, revelations and recriminations.
It takes a while to get going and never outstrips its theatrical origins but gets by on great actors working through meaty scenes. See it for Streep vs. Roberts alone.
