Description

Max Wolinsky comes from a family of mostly upstanding salesmen. On the eve of his son's bar mitzvah he returns home to Philadelphia where he plans to put the finishing touches on a not-so-honorable business transaction and then disappear quietly back to Florida. Nothing, however, goes as planned for this con man with a conscience.

Honest, funny, and moving, Responsible Men is a portrait of three generations of men struggling to be good sons and good fathers in a world of big dreams and bigger temptations.
