For decades, their opposing natures complemented one another perfectly. But suddenly the family is torn apart at the seams: A few hours before picking up his oldest son from a rehabilitation center, Isaiah declares to the camera, “As people get older they have less and less passion.” He then confesses to an affair with his assistant, is kicked out of the house, and spirals into a debilitating, suicidal depression. A fascinating portrait of love and betrayal, family bonds, and the intimacy of dysfunction.  The film features music by The Books, Explosions in the Sky, Efterklang, Bibio, Colleen & an original score by Kelli Scarr.  Tickets $5/online, $6/at the door, 11/2, 1:00 & 8:00 pm, 11/3, 8:00 pm.  www.auburnpublictheater.org  315-253-6669
