Todd Solondz is scheduled to be present at the November 30 screening.
Todd Solondz examines the irretrievability of youth in this melancholy and idiosyncratic comedy starring Justin Bartha, Selma Blair, Mia Farrow, and Christopher Walken. Though in his thirties, Abe clings to the trappings of his adolescence. Still living with his parents, he works for his increasingly disappointed Dad and spends evenings ruthlessly trouncing his Mom at backgammon. His older brother Richard’s success as a California doctor feeds Abe’s resentment and rage at his family over his own failures. When Abe meets Miranda, he sees what he thinks is a chance at true love. Tempering his trademark lacerating humor with tenderness, Solondz creates a poignant and provocative portrait of a besieged man-child and his fractured family.
