Post-break-up and without a plan, Jenny (Anna Kendrick) moves in with her brother (Swanberg) and his wife (Melanie Lynskey) for the holidays, but her arrival triggers a whirlwind of drunken hijinks and irresponsible behavior that upsets the family’s balance. The ever-prolific Swanberg follows his indie hit Drinking Buddies with this charmingly relaxed comedy shot in 16mm, featuring Lena Dunham as Jenny’s outspoken high school friend and a scene-stealing performance by the director’s two-year-old son. A Magnolia Pictures release.
