Affluent Upper West Siders Kate (Keener) and Alex (Platt) make their living reselling the elegant '50s furniture they've dubiously secured from the relatives of the newly deceased.

An indie with pedigree, smarts and plenty of wit, Holofcener's comedy of manners is well-observered and well worth watching.
