In the dark action comedy The Family, a Mafia boss and his family are relocated to a sleepy town in France under the Witness Protection Program after snitching on the mob. Despite Agent Stansfield's (Tommy Lee Jones) best efforts to keep them in line, Fred Blake (Robert De Niro), his wife Maggie (Michelle Pfeiffer) and their children, Belle (Dianna Agron) and Warren (John D'Leo), can't help resorting to old habits by handling their problems the "family" way. Chaos ensues as their former Mafia cronies try to track them down and scores are settled in the unlikeliest of settings, in this subversively funny film by Luc Besson.

The Family stars Academy Award® winners Robert De Niro (Raging Bull, Silver Linings Playbook), and Tommy Lee Jones (Lincoln, No Country for Old Men), Academy Award nominee Michelle Pfeiffer (Scarface, The Fabulous Baker Boys), Dianna Agron ("Glee," I Am Number Four), and John D'Leo (The Wrestler, Brooklyn's Finest).
