Synopsis

Feeling trapped in the stifling, wealthy enclave of Westport, Connecticut, Anders Harris (Ben Mendelsohn) retires from his job in finance and leaves his wife (Edie Falco) in the hopes that it will renew his lust for life. However, he's quickly faced with the startling reality of his choices; he spends his days looking for things to decorate his empty shelves, sleeping with strangers and feeling terribly lost. Missing his ex-wife and on the outs with his troubled 27-year-old son (Thomas Mann), Anders befriends a drug-addicted teen (Charlie Tahan), sending him down a path of reckless and regrettable behavior. His shameful actions cause him to question who he is as a father and, ultimately, who he is as a person.

Characters don't always have to be likable!!!

This is not a movie for everyone. The characters are flawed and that's what makes them real. We do certain things in life without any reason. And that's what happens in this movie and that's what people are criticising but it is also that thing that made me like this movie. Not all characters are free of fault and the ones who look like the victims are equally to be blamed for everything that happened in the movie. I haven't read the novel but the movie is making me want to pick it up. Anders(played by the brilliant Ben Mendelsohn) has taken an early retirement but decorating his house and sleeping with strangers is not bringing him the happiness he expected to find after cutting ties with his old life. Even if you can't relate to his story, you'll be able to relate to him. I know Netflix has been failing in the action and romantic movie genres but in my opinion, they're not doing so bad in drama movies.

Sometimes, you need depressing too

By watching this film, you won't get a story, or some profound way to "live the best life" it's about reality, it's about knowing the things that you do or plan will always not result in happiness. Savour it's slowness in solitude, hopefully you will connect with Anders.

With the feel of a series

I enjoyed this movie. It wasn't anything fancy, it just showed a short look into a middle aged man's life. I found it had the feel of a series and I think it could have been a few episodes maybe. I liked the leads, although the son was a little flat.

I think it explored guilt and the lost loneliness that can befall people when they've been in a marriage, but find themselves lost.
