When great-grandpa Sonnenschein (the name means "sunshine") bottled the cure-all elixir "A Taste of Sunshine," he established a family fortune and assumed his sons would continue the business. But great-grandpa's sons - and family members to come - had very different hopes and dreams. Ralph Fiennes plays not one, but three roles in this compelling and acclaimed epic about a Jewish family caught in the upheavals and false hopes of the war-swept 20th century. A distinguished cast joins Fiennes, including william Hurt as a war survivor whose new post as a communist official gives him power over his former enemies. DVD only. 180 minutes. R.
