Burt Lancaster gives one of the most memorable performances of his career... ...in the critically-acclaimed ROCKET GIBRALTAR. Lancaster stars as Levi Rockwell, a writer, professor, comic and lover of the sea, who is about to turn 77. In celebration of the event, Levi's four children and eight grandchildren return to his home on the idyllic shores of Saggaponack, New York. Featured as one of the eight Rockwell grandchildren is Macaulay Culkin, star of Home Alone and My Girl. The Rockwell clan is a close-knit family who share a warm relationship with Levi. But what begins as a joyful day marking a milestone in a man's life turns into a surprisingly ironic and moving event as the grandchildren honor Levi's most cherished wish. A provocative film that crosses generations and is similar in spirit to The Big Chill, Susan Granger of WMCA Radio called ROCKET GIBRALTAR "A total 10. Not since On Golden Pond has there been such a loving film."
