Greenberg brings actor Ben Stiller together with writer/director Noah Baumbach (“The Squid and the Whale”) to tell the funny and moving tale of Roger Greenberg, a single, fortyish and at a crossroads in his life who finds himself in Los Angeles, house-sitting for six weeks for his more successful/married-with-children brother.
In search of a place to restart his life, Greenberg tries to reconnect with old friends including his former bandmate Ivan [Rhys Ifans].
But old friends aren’t necessarily still best friends, and Greenberg soon finds himself spending more and more time with his brother’s personal assistant Florence [Greta Gerwig], an aspiring singer and also something of a lost soul.
Despite his best attempts not to be drawn in, Greenberg and Florence manage to forge a connection, and Greenberg realizes he may at last have found a reason to be happy.
Greenberg comes to UK cinemas on April 23rd 2010
