A nice film
This film tells the story of a high flying entrepreneur who lost everything on the night of his company launch. With nothing under his belt, he goes unannounced to his sister's home to stay a few months. The problem is, he and his sister aren't even close.
"Adult Beginners" is a fun film. It tells the way Jake slowly reconnects with his sister Justina, who haven't seen each other for a year. In the three months they stay together, they grow closer to each other and even make amends of the troubled past. The topic is dealt with in a light hearted manner so that it's not grim at all, but still provides the emotional roller-coaster amidst the laughters. It highlights the divide between work and family, and makes people reflect on the importance of connecting with your family. It's a nice film to watch.
