Kate and Alex (Catherine Keener and Oliver Platt) own a successful Manhattan furniture store, reselling mid-century modern treasures purchased from the estates of the newly deceased. Wanting to enlarge and remodel the apartment where they live with their acne-ridden teenage daughter Abby (Sarah Steele), they've bought the unit neighbouring their own. But before they can expand their home, they must wait for their current tenant - miserable, 91-year-old Andra (Ann Guilbert), to die. As Kate's family gets to know Andra and the granddaughters who look after her (Rebecca Hall and Amanda Peet), animosity, infidelity, friendship, and empathy play out with sharp humour and pathos. A perceptive - and painfully funny - take on modern life's contradictions, good intentions and shaky moral bearings from writer/director Nicole Holofcener ('Lovely and Amazing').
