Roger Greenberg (Stiller) is single, fortyish and deliberately doing nothing. In search of a place to restart his life, he agrees to housesit for his brother in LA and tries to reconnect with his former bandmate (Rhys Ifans) and ex-girlfriend (Jennifer Jason Leigh). But old friends arent necessarily still best friends, and Greenberg soon finds himself forging a connection with his brothers personal assistant, Florence (Greta Gerwig). Despite his best attempts not to be drawn in, Greenberg comes to realise that he may at last have found a reason to be happy. Critics rave, "Greenberg has a soul, a heart and a sense of humor".
