Louis Ives (Paul Dano) is a lonely dreamer who fancies himself the hero of an F. Scott Fitzgerald novel. When a deeply embarrassing incident forces him to leave his job, Louis heads to New York City to make a fresh start. He rents a room in the ramshackle apartment of Henry Harrison (Kevin Kline), a penniless, wildly eccentric, but brilliant playwright, who schools Louis in the duties of being an “extra man”—a social escort for the wealthy widows of Manhattan high society. The two men soon form a quirky and volatile, yet memorable bond. (2K DCP presentation)
