Movie Details

Adapted from an autobiographical short story by Grammy-nominated humorist David Sedaris, writer/director Kyle Patrick Alvarez's gently humorous comedy-drama stars Glee's Jonathan Groff as a young, self-righteous writer who learns more about life than he ever thought possible while spending a summer working on an Oregon apple farm. David (Groff) and his best friend Jennifer (Troian Bellisario) were planning to spend their summer working together on the farm when Jennifer cancelled on him at the last possible moment. Determined to carry on with the trip regardless, David eventually arrives at his rural destination, where he quickly discovers that his new coworkers seem to resent anyone with the ability to think independently. But in time things start to change; David wins the friendship of an amiable forklift driver named Curly (Corey Stoll), and encounters Jon (Denis O'Hare), a compassionate born-again artist with genuine concern for David's well-being. By the time David's soul-searching summer draws to a close, his arrogance has been eroded by the kindness of the people he once saw as inferior, resulting in a series of life-altering epiphanies. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
