Two misfit men cross find common ground in this New York City-set comedy. After Louis Ives (Dano) loses his job at a Princeton prep school, he moves to New York City. He rents a room from Henry Harrison (Kline), a brilliant but failed playwright who escorts wealthy widows in New York’s Upper East Side. The two form an unlikely mentor/apprentice bond, despite the 40 years that separate them in age.
