About the Film
Josh (Justin Long) isn't having the best week. The adjunct writing professor finds himself in hot water after a controversial classroom discussion has a triggering effect on a student, his beloved grandmother (Lynn Cohen) is in the hospital, sending his mother (Fran Drescher) into a tailspin, his sister (Kate Berlant) abruptly moves in with him, and his father (Richard Schiff) is distant because of the demands of his new family. Filmmaker Daniel Schechter returns to the Festival with this sharp and thought-provoking comedy.
