Synopsis

Writer and director Todd Solondz (WELCOME TO THE DOLLHOUSE, HAPPINESS) creates a poignant and provocative portrait of two dysfunctional thirty-somethings, their plans to marry and a besieged man-child and his fractured family.

35-ish Abe (Jordan Gelber) is still living at home with his parents, Jackie (Christopher Walken) and Phyllis (Mia Farrow), and comfortably surrounded by his collection of toys and action figures in his bedroom. Overshadowed by his older brother Richard (Justin Bartha) a successful doctor, an unambitious Abe seems to be going nowhere working in the family business for his dad.

However, when Abe meets Miranda (Selma Blair), who has recently returned to live with her parents following professional and personal disasters, Abe sees what he believes is a chance at true love.
