Written and directed by Nicole Holofcener (Friends with Money, Walking and Talking, Lovely & Amazing), this poignant comedy/drama set in New York City stars Catherine Keener, Amanda Peet, Oliver Platt, Rebecca Hall, Sarah Steele, and Ann Guilbert.
Kate (Catherine Keener) has a lot on her mind. There’s the ethics problem of buying furniture on the cheap at estate sales and marking it up at her trendy Manhattan store (and how much mark-up can she get away with?). There’s the materialism problem of not wanting her teenage daughter (Sarah Steele) to want the expensive things that Kate wants. There’s the marriage problem of sharing a partner-ship in parenting, business, and life with her husband Alex (Oliver Platt) but sensing doubt nibbling at the foundations. And there’s Kate’s free-floating 21st-century malaise—the problem of how to live well and be a good person when poverty, homelessness, and sadness are always right outside the door.
In addition to the original script, this Newmarket Shooting Scriptbook features an introduction by Holofcener, along with a Q&A, 14 photographs, and full cast and crew credits.
