WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
A struggling, hapless, unpublished novelist gets the chance to rewrite his future in this comedy about the seriousness of life.
Matthew Leibowitz, a 40-year old wisecracking, unpublished novelist holds fast to his dreams despite unrelenting disapproval from his wife and extended family. Facing divorce, misunderstood by his practical brother and sister-in-law and in denial about his recently widowed father - Matthew's disheveled life (and New York apartment) could use some resemblance of order.
Things take a turn when Matthew and his flamboyant, eavesdropping neighbor care for Matthew's elderly, uncommunicative father.
