Storyline

Thomas Webb, the son of a publisher and his artistic wife, has just graduated from college and is trying to find his place in the world. Moving from his parents' Upper West Side apartment to the Lower East Side, he befriends his neighbor W.F., a shambling alcoholic writer who dispenses worldly wisdom alongside healthy shots of whiskey. Thomas' world begins to shift when he discovers that his long-married father is having an affair with a seductive younger woman. Determined to break up the relationship, Thomas ends up sleeping with his father's mistress, launching a chain of events that will change everything he thinks he knows about himself and his family.

Trivia

The film has been in development since 2012. On August 25, 2012, it was announced that 500 Days of Summer (2009) Director Marc Webb would direct the film (a little over a month after the release of Webb's previous movie The Amazing Spider-Man (2012)). After which, the film went through various actors and actresses joining then leaving, and different drafts of the script being written, and various of other problems. It was only until they finally cast the film, finished the full script (and the errors within the first draft), Marc Webb finishing The Amazing Spider-Man movies, and his next film Gifted (2017), that the film would finally start shooting. It's been five years since the films announcement, until it released in 2017. See more »

how did this get into theaters?
19 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

I didn't get this movie. At first I thought the director was trying to imitate a Woody Allen movie. This didn't work. Then I thought I'd gone to some romcom by accident, but no one was laughing. The script is bad, the 'deep psychological' plot turns just don't work, the casting is terrible, there's definitely no magic going on between the actors. I sat through 1 1/2 hours, but I advice you to save your bucks and just don't go see this movie. You'll probably be able to see in on Netflix in a few months in the "Arthouse" section.
