Somewhere

A hard-living Hollywood actor re-examines his life after his 11-year-old daughter surprises him with a visit.

The 4th

Jamie is just trying to buy some lighter fluid for a 4th of July cookout. Actually, he bought the lighter fluid already, it’s just that he left it at the store, and he already walked the whole way back. His roommate’s out of town, so he could probably just borrow his bike, but that bike also means everything to him and Jamie is already behind on rent. It’s too bad a chance encounter on the way fuels a chain reaction of terrible luck and frustrating situations that threaten to spin his life out of control.

The Last Time You Had Fun

When Ida, cheeks streaked by mascara tears, unexpectedly shows up at her sister’s, the staid Alison bargains her way out of mom duty for the night and the two head off to an Eastside wine bar. There, they run into Will and the freshly divorced, sweat pants-attired Clark. After some slightly inebriated commiserating about mismanaged marriages and other adult concerns, the foursome head out into the night, careening from downtown lofts to pot dispensaries to midnight swims and back again, determined to prove they still have what it takes to have a good time.
