A story that follows as a New York woman (who doesn't really have an apartment) apprentices for a dance company (though she's not really a dancer) and throws herself headlong into her dreams, even as their possibility dwindles.
Margot and her son Claude decide to visit her sister Pauline after she announces that she is marrying less-than-impressive Malcolm. In short order, the storm the sisters create leaves behind a mess of thrashed relationships and exposed family secrets.
Jennifer Jason Leigh,
Ben Stiller and Adam Driver previously starred together in the film While We're Young. See more »
While Danny is on the phone with Eliza (who is at Bard College), he states, "I might go stay at Jean's in Rochester for a while. I'll be closer to you...". The distance between Rochester and Bard College is actually significantly greater than New York City to Bard. See more »
It's called flirting when you're young. I'm not sure what it's called when you're over 70.

I know a man exactly like the father, played by Dustin Hoffman.
Completely narcissistic. Never have I seen narcissism captured so well
The effects on his three adult children, played by a serious Adam
Sandler (whom I normally find like chalk on a blackboard irritating), a
tightly reined in Ben Stiller and a totally repressed brilliant
performance by the forgotten sister, are riveting.
The only flawed performance was that of Emma Thompson who was uneven
and jittery and even though classified as an alcoholic displayed none
of the attributes.
Thoroughly enjoyable. And believable.
