A story that follows a New York woman (who doesn't really have an apartment), apprentices for a dance company (though she's not really a dancer), and throws herself headlong into her dreams, even as their possibility dwindles.
Margot and her son Claude decide to visit her sister Pauline after she announces that she is marrying less-than-impressive Malcolm. In short order, the storm the sisters create leaves behind a mess of thrashed relationships and exposed family secrets.

Iris invites her friend Jack to stay at her family's island getaway after the death of his brother. At their remote cabin, Jack's drunken encounter with Hannah, Iris' sister, kicks off a revealing stretch of days.
We like Florence: she's considerate, sweet, pretty, and terrific with kids and dogs. She's twenty-five, personal assistant to an L.A. family that's off on vacation. Her boss's brother comes in from New York City, fresh from a stay at an asylum, to take care of the house. He's Roger, a forty-year-old carpenter, gone from L.A. for fifteen years. He arrives, doesn't drive, and needs Florence's help, especially with the family's dog. He's also connecting with former band-mates - two men and one woman with whom he has a history. He over-analyzes, has a short fuse, and doesn't laugh at himself easily. As he navigates past and present, he's his own saboteur. And what of Florence? is Roger one more responsibility for her or something else? Written by
In the party/coke scene two hipsters take off Duran Duran and put on the Drunks With Guns song "Wonderful Subdivision" - and though the contract said the film would use "up to 40 seconds of the song" in the final edit only the first 4 measures of the drum intro are used, making it one of film's most expensive ($6000) "throw away" song edits. The DWG were probably St Louis' most infamous 1980's post punk band, lead by known felon & admitted misanthrope Mike Doskocil. See more »
If your family name is Greenberg, you should take part in a class action lawsuit
Falling prey to the Jewish sounding title (should have learned a lesson from "Zohan" or "Royal Tenenbaums"), I saw this film in a cinema with many other like minded tribe members. Had the film been called Roger, I would guess that there would have been two people in the theater. What a total waste of movie making resources. This film was painful to watch. I cannot find one aspect of this movie with any redeeming quality. The script was weak, the story line implausible, the characters shallow and limp (save the British friend), the cinematography dreary, the sex scenes made procreation seem like a crime against humanity, acting miserable. There were two or three funny lines (you guessed it, if you have seen the trailers, you got all of them). The only positive thing to come out of this film - I am starting an organization called "Friends Tell Friends When A Movie Stinks". It highlights the importance of helping humanity avoid the pain and suffering that occurs during and after watching a film such as this. If you see a flop, spread the news.
