In that most idealized period of 20th-century America, the Eisenhower years of the 1950s, the Pazinski family has a lot going on in their cramped Buffalo apartment.  The youngest of the bunch, 12 year-Rudy is a smart, wise-cracking kid who’s starting to question family values and the Roman Catholic Church.  When Rudy goes up against the ruler-wielding Sister Clarissa and announces that instead of being confirmed he’d rather shop around for a more “fun” religion, all hell breaks loose.  A warm and hilarious look at family growing up, and God.
