Screenwriter Hudson Milbank (Matthew Perry), who is suffering from acute depersonalisation disorder, is convinced that he's going insane. But he's just met the perfect girl (Lynn Collins, THE LAKE HOUSE) and struggles to be his most charming self. Meanwhile, he frantically seeks a cure for his anxieties and goes through a string of therapists who turn out to be crazier than him.
Co-starring Kevin Pollak (THE USUAL SUSPECTS) and AcademyŽ Award winner Mary Steenburgen as the hilarious lusty psychiatrist Dr Cheryl Blaine, NUMB will warm the heart of anybody who has ever teetered on the edge of a breakdown. Director Harris Goldberg is known for very broad Hollywood fare, but here he draws on personal experience to craft a witty and sensitive character comedy.
