"Hands down, Kevin Kline's funniest role in years."

-Melissa Ryzik, New York Times

"Kevin Kline gives a master class in acting. He finds every nuance of mirth and melancholy in this wonder of a role and rides it to glory. You can't take your eyes off him."

-Peter Travers, ROLLING STONE

"ENDEARING. Kevin Kline has a ball and Paul Dano is pitch-perfect."

-Elizabeth Weitzman, NY Dailly News

"THE FILMMAKLERS AND CAST SUCCESSFULLY CREATE THE HARDEST CHARACTERS TO PULL OFF: EXOTIC, YET RECOGNIZABLE NEW YORKERS. It affectionately honors its characters' idiosyncrasies, never diluting them into typical indie-comedy quirk."

-Melissa Anderson, Village Voice

"Winsome and touching. Kevin Kline’s performance is fantastic."

-Ellen Thompson, Nylon

"A TIMELESS NEW YORK STORY. Kevin Kline soars in one of his best screen roles. A highly entertaining character comedy exemplified by wit, intelligence and joie de vivre."

-Todd McCarthy, Variety

"A deeply goofy comedy which boasts one of Kevin Kline’s funniest ever performances."

-Tim Grierson, Screen International

About The Film

Louis Ives (Paul Dano) heads to New York City following an embarrassing incident that forces him to leave his job. He rents a room in the apartment of Henry Harrison (Kevin Kline), a penniless, wildly eccentric playwright. Additionally, he accepts a position with an environmental magazine, where he encounters green-obsessed co-worker Mary (Katie Holmes). But it’s Louis’ new home life with Henry that really sparks his imagination. Developing a mentor/apprentice relationship, Henry exposes Louis to the duties of an “extra man,” a social escort for wealthy widows.
