Synopsis

The after thought child to elderly parents (Ed Asner, Jane Alexander), and the youngest son in a trio of successful brothers, a shady oilman (Ian Roberts), a surgeon (Robert Stanton), Brian Weathersby (Paul Dano) searching for his place in the world.

Brian is a 28 year-old salesman at a upmarket Swedish mattress company. His job is nothing special, just a means to an end and consequently he spends a good portion of his day pursuing his goal of someday adopting a baby from China.

When the lovely but misguided Harriet Lolly (Zooey Deschanel) comes into his store one day and falls asleep on one of the beds, he is instantly attracted to her and gets swept up in a romance. To win her over though, he must compete with her bear of a father, Al Lolly, (John Goodman). He's an art-collecting loudmouth with a bad back and deep pockets!

GIGANTIC is a funny, surreal love story about the anxiety that comes when two people with crazy families collide unexpectedly and fall for each other.
