Adult Beginners

Coming Soon
(US / 2014 / Directed by Ross Katz)
Unrated / 90 mins. 
Out of a job after a disastrous product launch, a big-city yuppie (Nick Kroll) retreats to his suburban childhood home in this heart-warming and hilarious film about crashing hard, coming home, and waking up.
Now occupied by his pregnant sister Justine, her husband Danny (Rose Byrne & Bobby Cannavale), and their three year-old son Teddy, Jake is told he can stay as long as he wants as long as he looks after Teddy on the weekdays. Used to a high-rolling lifestyle and knowing zilch about children, Jake finds himself in suburban purgatory until he decides to make a fresh start. Punchy and humor-filled, the film is animated brilliantly by its charismatic cast. Kroll shines with his dry wit and mischievous grin, while Byrne gives a vivid portrayal of a working mother desperate for a break and Cannavale radiates a resonant blend of paternal affection and pent-up anxiety. Produced by the talented Jay and Mark Duplass, Adult Beginners speaks to that voice in each of us that wonders if we’re allowed to fail and still move forward.
