Abe, a fat, mid-30-something lives with his parents and works for his dad. Uncool and socially inept, he alternates between politeness and rage. Abe invents a reciprocal romance with the beautiful, overmedicated depressive Miranda. In his self-delusion, he proposes marriage. Shockingly, she accepts.

MUBI's take

This bruising study in arrested development finds a petulant man-child wrestling with the demands of adult responsibility after falling, rather quickly, in love. Jordan Gelber is great as the hopeless schlub, crafting with director Todd Solondz a poignantly updated take on Paddy Chayevsky’s Marty.
