Academy Award-nominated screenwriter/director Noah Baumbach (“The Squid and the Whale”) brings us the funny, touching and poignant story of two souls adrift in Los Angeles, trying to forge a connection. Florence Marr (Greta Gerwig), an aspiring singer struggling to find her place in the world, works as a personal assistant to the Greenberg family. Roger Greenberg (Ben Stiller) has come to L.A. to housesit for his family. He's single, fortyish, witty, sharp-tongued – and, like Florence, something of a lost soul. Greenberg's vulnerability immediately endears him to Florence, and what begins as a courtesy to her employer develops into a charmingly eccentric and unexpectedly significant connection. As Greenberg discovers there is only so much “nothing” you can do, the awkward beauty of what he builds with Florence starts to look more and more like a reason to be happy.
