Friendship, past loves, and the burden of living in New York City as an artist meet in “Growing Up & Other Lies,” an “anti-coming-of-age comedy” from the directors of “Humboldt County.” The Manhattan-centric movie stars Adam Brody, Wyatt Cenac, Danny Jacobs, Josh Lawson, Amber Tamblyn, and Lauren Miller, and is about a man leaving New York who takes his best friends on a walking tour of their greatest memories. Here’s the official synopsis:
After struggling for years as an artist in New York City, Jake is calling it quits and returning home to Ohio. On his last day in the city, he persuades his three oldest friends to help him retrace their greatest adventure together: a walk down the entire length of Manhattan. But their attempt to reclaim the glory of their early 20s doesn’t go quite as planned.
Over the course of the day, buried conflicts emerge as Jake becomes embroiled with his ex-girlfriend and his friends dip into their own crises of manhood. GROWING UP AND OTHER LIES is an anti-coming-of-age comedy.
Written and directed by Darren Grodsky and Danny Jacobs, eOne will release “Growing Up & Other Lies” in theaters and On Demand on March 20th.. Watch the trailer below.
