Synopsis

Lucy Stanbridge (Aubrey Plaza) is an energetic young woman, the heir to a once celebrated publishing house which, at this point in time, is teetering on the edge of bankruptcy. What happened to that golden age, when the firm hit the big time with Harris Shaw’s bestseller Atomic Autumn? Now fifty years older, the cranky, whisky-swilling author prefers to shut himself off from the world, but Lucy is prepared to do anything to save the family business. For instance, to exploit the fact that Harris Shaw owes the company another bestseller. The phenomenal Sir Michael Caine takes one of the leads in the dramedy which premiered in Berlin this year.
