Noah Baumbach's latest film Greenberg is set to hit theater screens this Friday, March 26th. Ben Stiller stars as the title character, a forty-something carpenter housesitting for his wealthy brother after having a nervous breakdown. He strikes up a bizarre relationship with his brother's assistant (Greta Gerwig) and tries to save his friendship with a long forgotten buddy (Rhys Ifans). We recently caught up with the three stars to chat with them about this very interesting comedic drama. To watch our exclusive interviews, click on the video below:
Meet Roger Greenberg (Ben Stiller): a dysfunctional 40-year-old at a crossroads in his life. Roger wants to "do nothing" for a while, so he agrees to housesit for his younger and more successful brother, giving him a free place to stay in L.A. While in town, he tries to reconnect with his old friends and band mates but times have changed, and old friends aren't necessarily still best friends. Greenberg starts spending time with his brother's personal assistant Florence (Greta Gerwig), an aspiring singer and herself something of a lost soul too. During a series of embarrassingly awkward romantic encounters, we sense that perhaps even someone as irascible as Greenberg may have found somebody who is prepared to appreciate him for himself - if he would only stop critiquing Florence's techniques in bed. Over the course of several weeks, we watch an uncertain and wonderfully vulnerable courtship play out, and learn how funny, and terribly unpredictable, love in the modern world can be. Directed by Noah Baumbach, Greenberg opens this Friday, March 26th, in theaters across the country.
