In this hit from the Tribeca Film Festival, a young writer (Zosia Mamet, HBO’s Girls, The Kids Are All Right) is forced to reflect on her first relationship when she inadvertently moves into her ex-boyfriend’s apartment building. Like a true New Yorker, she keeps the apartment.

The move prompts her to try on many roles, including spy, hopeful lover, casual acquaintance, disgruntled neighbor, and friend. Mamet shines in each new phase, and gives a charming and deeply moving performance as a woman caught between love and career. First-time writer-director Sophie Brooks presents a new take on the classic romantic comedy.
