The latest indie drama from Todd Solondz, follow-up to “Life During Wartime” which he won the Golden Osella award for best screenplay at the 66th Venice Film Festival. It is about Abe (Jordan Gelber), a 30-something male living with his parents, reluctantly working for his father while pursuing his hobby of collecting toys. To lose his “dark horse” status in the family, he’s also trying to spark a relationship with Miranda (Selma Blair), who recently moved back home after a failed literary/academic career. Miranda agrees to marry Abe out of desperation, and things go awry from there. The film also stars Christopher Walken and Mia Farrow.
The film premiered at the Venice Film Festival in September 2011, as well as the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival the same month.
