STARRING Ben Stiller, Greta Gerwig, Rhys Ifans, Jennifer Jason Leigh
WRITTEN BY Noah Baumbach, Jennifer Jason Leigh
DIRECTED BY Noah Baumbach

Roger Greenberg (a grey-haired Ben Stiller) is a complete loser content with doing absolutely nothing in this dark indie comedy written by the husband and wife team of Noah Baumbach (The Squid and the Whale) and Jennifer Jason Leigh. When he agrees to house sit for his successful younger brother, a surprising relationship with Florence (Greta Gerwig) ensues, throwing off Greenberg’s pessimistic outlook, and potentially giving him a reason to be happy. Even at his most awkward, Stiller’s likeable loser is one we want to root for.
