When Lucy Stanbridge (Aubrey Plaza) inherits her father’s publishing house, the ambitious would-be editor is confronted with the reality of a struggling business with a string of failed titles. She soon discovers the company is owed a book by Harris Shaw, played by Academy-award winner Michael Caine, a reclusive cantankerous, booze-addled author who originally put the publishing house on the map decades earlier. In a last-ditch effort to save the business, Lucy and Harris release his new book and embark on a tour from hell that changes them both in pleasantly surprising ways.
The gentle literacy comedy was an official selection at the Berlin International Film Festival, a charming ‘pas de deux’ showcasing the best of the unlikely pairing of an anxious Audrey Plaza and the very cranky Michael Caine.
