Additional Information

Additional Information
This family is about to meet some remarkably loving people. Each other.

On the occasion of wealthy patriarch Burt Lancaster's 77th birthday, his Long Island home is invaded by well-meaning family members. Lancaster is bored by the well-meaning interference of his grown children, but he thrives on the company of his grandchildren, especially 5-year-old Macaulay Culkin (in a terrific pre-star performance). To the kids, Lancaster reveals what he really wants as a birthday present: an old-fashioned Viking funeral! From this point on, the ending of Rocket Gibraltar is a "done deal", but getting there is all the fun. A superb, hand-picked cast--including Suzy Amis, Sinead Cusack, John Glover, Bill Pullman and Kevin Spacey -does full justice to Amos Poe's whimsical, often deeply touching script

Rocket Gibraltar is an American film released in 1988, directed by Daniel Petrie and starring Burt Lancaster, Patricia Clarkson and Macaulay Culkin (in his first film). Lancaster stars as Levi Rockwell, an aging patriarch who reunites his entire family at his Long Island estate for his 77th birthday, but personal and social problems abound.
