As Philip awaits the publication of his second novel, he feels pushed out of his adopted home city by the constant noise and a deteriorating relationship with his girlfriend Ashley. When Philip’s idol offers his summer home as a refuge, he finally gets to focus on his favorite subject: himself.
In Alex Ross Perry’s audacious dark comedy, Jason Schwartzman, Elisabeth Moss, and Jonathan Pryce round out a stellar cast for a story that takes emotionally rich, surprising turns. A comment on the loathsome, narcissistic writer figure that’s full of brutally acidic humour hiding deeper ponderings.
