Based on the best-selling novel by Nick Hornby (High Fidelity), written and produced by Jason Katims (Friday Night Lights), and directed by Jon Favreau (Iron Man) comes a different kind of coming-of-age story.
After writing a hit song, Will Freeman (David Walton, Perfect Couples) was granted a life of free time, free love and freedom from financial woes. He's single, unemployed and loving it. So imagine his surprise when Fiona (Minnie Driver, Good Will Hunting), a needy single mom and her oddly charming 11-year-old son, Marcus (Benjamin Stockham, 1600 Penn), move in next door and disrupt his perfect world. Before he realizes it, Will starts to enjoy the visits and even finds himself looking out for the kid. In fact, this newfound friendship may very well teach him a thing or two that he never imagined possible - about himself and caring for others.
