With her widower father currently living it up in Paris with a young, new girlfriend, Lilian (Van Patten) has been placed into the care of family friends over in Brooklyn, New York. Under the roof of famed author, Julia Price (Mortimer), Lilian has no real motivation to live any other lifestyle than that of her hermit housemate. To impress her ex-boyfriend, and the other cynics around her, Lilian suddenly decides to make a documentary on Julia - albeit, an unauthorized one - with the help of some new people in her life.

User Reviews

Enjoyable - some great characters
16 October 2019 | by sawaughSee all my reviews

A quirky enjoyable film that is centred around Lillian (Grace Van Patten) whose character finds herself in a situation with some interesting we played characters especially John Early plays a really wacky film producer called (Sol sometimes) and Timm Sharp a dog walker.

There are some great scenes like where Lillian first meets Emily Mortimer who isn't actually in the film visually very much and the ends up getting stoned with her husband and the interactions with Lillian ex really captured some early adult phase scenarios.

The length of the film is also well measured from the scope of the story. Nice One
