As They Made Us

As They Made Us

Starring Dustin Hoffman, Candice Bergen and Dianna Agron, this directorial debut from actress Mayim Bialik offers an authentic and non-judgmental portrait of a dysfunctional Jewish family.  

Abigail (Agron), a divorced mother of two, is struggling to balance the dynamics within her family as she attempts to cultivate new love. Her father Eugene (Hoffman) has a health condition that he and his wife Barbara (Bergen) refuse to accept, and her brother Nathan has been estranged from the family for decades. A self-appointed fixer, Abigail tries to mend her complicated family before it's too late.
