Fabricating credentials to score a last-ditch job as a high school guidance counsellor, a boozing, drug-addled former child star becomes an improbable hit with his students by dispensing the worst advice possible.
When a group of old college friends reunite over a long weekend after one of them attempts suicide, old crushes and resentments shine light on their life decisions, and ultimately push friendships and relationships to the brink.
Will Henry is a newly single graphic novelist balancing parenting his young twin daughters and a classroom full of students while exploring and navigating the rich complexities of new love and letting go of the woman who left him.
James C. Strouse
Eddie lands his first teaching gig at an inner city middle school and finds his highly pubescent pupils are receiving no form of sexual education. Eddie isn't really equipped to teach them...he's not exactly experienced romantically.

No, this movie is not for everyone. This is one of those little quirky films I like, that you never quite know where it's heading, but just sorta enjoy the journey along the way.
In this case, it's the same trek/journey that Lewis & Clark took to find the Northwest Passage. Griffin Dunne stars as the head of a family spiraling out of control, and after the passing of his mother, joins his father and a team of L&C reenactors with his son and daughter. In many ways, it's Madeleine Martin ("Californication") as the daughter that steals the show. She's clever, smart and always one step ahead of everyone else it seems. The funniest moments in this are little things you never quite expect- I've found that to be more my taste. So if you're into little cerebral comedies like this, "The Discoverers" will be right up your alley...
