Brief Synopsis: "A family looking for some extra space gets drawn into a difficult relationship with the folks next door in this comedy drama from writer and director Nicole Holofcener. Kate and Alex are a couple living in New York City who run a successful store specializing in vintage furniture. With their teenage daughter, Abby, their apartment is starting to feel a bit small for the three of them; Kate and Alex own the unit next door to them, and they plan to knock out a wall and take over the space. However, Andra, their tenant, is an elderly woman with a poor disposition who doesn't seem eager to go anywhere soon, and it's occurred to Kate and Alex that they're probably going to have wait for her to die. Hoping to make the best of the situation, Kate tries to strike up a friendship with Andra and her fiercely protective granddaughter Rebecca, but Andra isn't especially interested in making new friends, and Rebecca's sister, Mary, isn't much easier to deal with."
