"...a finely judged performance from Zosia Mamet as the would-be novelist, Diana..." - Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent

This romantic comedy follows a young woman forced to revisit a former relationship, whilst trying to adapt to her life back in New York after a two year stint in London.

Zosia Mamet (Girls) exhibits a winsome charm as Diana, navigating a rite of passage of every New Yorker: the search for the perfect apartment. She seemingly finds a jewel of a home, until realising her downstairs neighbour is actually her ex, Ben (Matthew Shear), whose heart she broke when she left town. She decides to keep the apartment, but Diana's close proximity to Ben means she must re-examine a love she thought was behind her. 

In the vein of Frances Ha, Maggie's Plan and Linklater's Before Trilogy.
