About the Film
Set in 1990s Manhattan, an era before instant communication enabled by the Internet and cell phones, Gillian Robespierre’s insightful dramatic comedy follows the dysfunctions of the Jacobs family. Elder daughter Dana (Jenny Slate) is already questioning her commitment to her straitlaced fiancé Ben (Jay Duplass) when her wild-child kid sister reveals that their father (John Turturro) might be having an affair. Do they reveal his secret, or is their mother (Edie Falco) better off in the dark?
