Greenberg brings together one of the funniest and most popular actors of our time, Ben Stiller, with Academy Award winning producer Scott Rudin and Academy Award nominated writer/director Noah Baumbach, to present a hugely funny, painfully awkward, and subtly felt portrait of modern relationships. Meet Roger Greenberg (Stiller): a dysfunctional 40-year-old at a crossroads in his life. Roger wants to “do nothing” for a while, so he agrees to house-sit for his younger and more successful brother, giving him a free place to stay in LA. While in town, he tries to reconnect with his old friends and band mates, but times have changed, and old friends aren’t necessarily still best friends. Greenberg starts spending time with his brother’s personal assistant Florence (Greta Gerwig), an aspiring singer and herself something of a lost soul too. During a series of embarrassingly awkward romantic encounters, we sense that perhaps even someone as irascible as Greenberg may have found somebody who is prepared to appreciate him for himself – if only he would stop critiquing Florence’s techniques in bed. Over the course of several weeks, we watch an uncertain and wonderfully vulnerable courtship play out, and learn how funny, and terribly unpredictable, love in the modern world can be.
