When 13-year-old Jake's (Theo Taplitz) grandfather dies, his family moves from Manhattan back into his father's old Brooklyn home. There, Jake befriends the charismatic Tony (Michael Barbieri), whose single mother Leonor (Paulina Garcia), runs the shop downstairs. Soon, Jake's parents Brian (Greg Kinnear) and Kathy (Jennifer Ehle) -- one, a struggling actor, the other, a psychotherapist -- ask Leonor to sign a new, steeper lease on her store. Jake and Tony, so different on the surface, begin to develop a formative friendship.

Subtle movie, gracefully done, that explores a fast friendship between two boys and the effects of gentrification. Refreshing to see a film that treats boys' intimacy and the challenges of growing up, intelligently.

The usual dilemma, to follow the heart or to use one's head? One mediocre actor Kinnear plus an annoying soundtrack.

as with Sach's last film, Love Is Strange, the New York real estate market is a character is this film.
a burgeoning friendship between Jake and Tony falls prey to the financial circumstances of their families.
issues of class, gender politics, under-employment, sexuality are all played out through the story with no explanations.
family love and loyalty can be both supportive and cruel.
4 stars for both of Sach's films

Pretty boring with no real payoff ending. The kid playing Tony was quite a good actor and we always enjoy Greg Kinnear, but that just isn't enough to recommend this movie. Whatever the critics saw to give it a high rating went right past both of us!
