Eric Stoltz, who’d played a philosophical bartender and lifelong student for Baumbach in Kicking and Screaming, returns in this sophomore feature as aspiring novelist Lester, who exhibits obsessive behavior when girlfriend Annabella Sciorra mentions a previous relationship with well-known writer Dashiell Frank (Chris Eigeman, hilarious), which sends Lester into a spiral of obsessive behavior and hysterically elaborate subterfuges. Featuring Peter Bogdanovich, as a pre-Sopranos shrink, beginning an off-screen friendship with Baumbach that has lasted over the last two decades.
