Steve Dallas may have a high-flying career as a TV weather man, but it hasn't affected his feelings for his distinctly less successful best buddy Ben Baker. The pair have been joined at the hip since their childhood, despite their vast personal differences, so when Ben attempts to barge into the studio to speak to Steve, the latter is by his side immediately. Ben's father has passed away and thus needs someone around who understands him and who can pull him through one of the toughest times of his life. Things get complicated though when Mr Baker Sr.'s last will and testament requests Ben be the receiver of his house, business and estate. Unfortunately, though, Ben is less than up to the task of taking on the family business and so Steve helps him find a way to get him back on his feet emotionally.
The rarity of true friendship is the main theme explored in this heart-warming comedy. Directed and written by Primetime Emmy winner Matthew Weiner ('Mad Men') in his feature film directorial debut, 'Are You Here' shows how people can always tell who their friends are during the hardest times of their lives. It is set to be released in US theaters on August 22nd 2014.
