After breaking up with her boyfriend, Lilian (Grace Van Patten) moves in with married couple Julia (Emily Mortimer) and Don (Ebon Moss-Bachrach) only to overhear them arguing in the night. The front door slams as Don moves out, and the following days sees Lilian, selfish and irresponsible, having to earn her keep by cooking for Julia, a reclusive, distrustful writer who rarely emerges from her room. Though communicating largely through notes, the odd couple gradually forge a bond and help one another to negotiate the foibles, phobias and obstacles that have long hindered their happiness…

In her feature debut, Dolly Wells crafts a contemporary, sharp-witted comedy starring her frequent collaborator Mortimer and talented newcomer, Van Patten. Cameos from Jonathan Ames, Martin Amis, and Zadie Smith add a particularly special layer of authenticity to this tale of two women whose eccentricities unexpectedly draw out change and growth in the other.

The main feature will commence 15 minutes after the advertised screening time.
