Kate (Catherine Keener) has a lot on her mind. There‘s the ethics problem of buying furniture on the cheap at estate sales and marking it up at her trendy Manhattan store (and how much mark-up can she get away with?). There‘s the materialism problem of not wanting her teenage daughter (Sarah Steele) to want the expensive things that Kate wants. There‘s the marriage problem of sharing a partnership in parenting, business, and life with her husband Alex (Oliver Platt) but sensing doubt nibbling at the foundations. And there‘s Kate‘s free-floating 21st century malaise - the problem of how to live well and be a good person when poverty, homelessness, and sadness are always right outside the door.

  • Characters are good; acting is good. Parents and teenage daughter scenario - relatable. But yeah, in the end, a bit boring and pointless. Bit of humour but not enough for me to give it any more than 2 stars.

  • Dry comedy, may not appeal to all... 3 stars

  • This was a movie I got to the end of and thought what was the point?

  • A really well crafted human comedy. I found myself under it's spell from the get go. There is no sensationalism but many of the topics covered are things we all agonise over in life from time to time. The individual personalities are very well defined and believable and none seem out of kilter. Some genuinely funny moments helped this along.

  • not as good as expected, though rhere were some funny parts that one could have a laugh
