Description: Set in New York City, Tim Blake Nelson's thought-provoking drama is a meditation of city life that examines the inextricable and unforeseen forces that bring a group of disparate individuals together in a world where many people are alone and life remains unexamined.
Walter Zarrow (Sam Waterston) is a well-loved Columbia University professor of philosophy. His son (Tim Blake Nelson) has just revealed daunting news that has made him realize its time to retire and concentrate on enjoying his golden years with his loving wife (Glenn Close). What he doesn’t know is how much his “being” may touch those around him: a troubled student (Kristen Stewart) a philandering husband (Corey Stoll), and a man fighting drug addiction (K. Todd Freeman). Gretchen Mol, Mickey Sumner, Jessica Hecht, Gloria Reuben and Michael K. Williams round out the cast.
