Nate, a 19 year old film student, and Margaret, a 52 year old spinster, are best friends in an odd, quirky, totally working kind of way... until Nate's audacious classmate Darla sets him up on a date with James. Nate's new life shakes apart his friendship with Margaret, who goes off on her own to start a career as a stand-up comedian. -- (C) Official Site

A lovely surprise -- it's endearing rather than sticky-sweet; truly charming rather than forced; and is enriched by its two leading performances as well as several memorable supporting turns.

Filmmaker Nathan Adloff obviously sees the audience as capable enough of handling a story without hand-holding...
