Abe (Gelber), a middle-aged, overweight neurotic, works for his overbearing father (Walken), is indulged by his mother (Farrow) and has never left home. Meeting the deeply depressed Miranda (Blair) at a wedding, he asks her out and instantly proposes marriage. Surprised when she accepts, Abe suffers crippling self-doubts which manifest themselves as realistic hallucinations.
Less confrontational than most Solondz movies, in that it refrains from violence or kink, but still unsettling and affecting.
