Stephen Elliot is a writer who's lost his way. He's previously had books fictional works published but his current case of writers block is causing disruption to his output. Another increasing problem with his creativity is a growing dependency of Adderall, an ADHD medication.
As Elliott learns of a fascinating murder case, he becomes more and more drawn to the story and the convicted murderer behind the crime. Whilst investigating the case, Elliott also finds himself going through a number of personal changes. His father, who pretty much abandoned his son as a young teenager, once again appears in his life and he's also introduced to a journalist called Lana Edmond which leads to a positive relationship for a man who mainly associates females with negative experiences.
Whilst trying to piece his new novel together, Elliott finds himself on a journey of self-discovery and must take his past to pieces to reveal exactly what's true and what's been fabricated in his mind.

John Patrick Shanley, Annika Boras, Timothée Chalamet, Robert Sean Leonard, Chris McGarry , David Potters - Opening night party for the MTC production Prodigal Son held at Brasserie 8.5 restaurant - Arrivals. at Brasserie 8.5 restaurant, - New York, New York, United States - Tuesday 9th February 2016
This may look like it's going to be a zany Christmas romp, but it's really a warm exploration of family connections, essentially an American take on Love Actually's multi-strand comedy-drama. At least it has an unusually strong cast and moments of hilarity scattered throughout the story. And while it's never very deep, the themes are strongly resonant.
The Cooper family is gathering for what Charlotte (Diane Keaton) hopes will be one last perfect Christmas together. She knows that her 40-year marriage to Sam (John Goodman) is on the brink, but is ignoring that to plan a massive dinner. Their son Hank (Ed Helms) is stinging from divorce and unemployment, while daughter Eleanor (Olivia Wilde) has picked up a hunky soldier (Jake Lacy) in the airport and asks him to pose as her boyfriend so her family will stop asking about her love life. Meanwhile, Charlotte's father Bucky (Alan Arkin) is trying to cheer up his favourite waitress (Amanda Seyfried), and Charlotte's sister Emma (Marisa Tomei) is delayed when a cop (Anthony Mackie) arrests her for shoplifting.
Narrated with wry joviality by Steve Martin, the interwoven stories are fairly simplistic, but each touches a raw nerve. And the above-average cast brings out the underlying themes without overplaying their scenes. Keaton and Goodman add subtle shades to the slightly undemanding central roles, while Arkin finds a couple of new textures to his usual twinkly grandad persona. Helms and Wilde strike the right balance in their intriguingly unlikeable roles, while Tomei gets the most complex character as a woman who feels like she's merely watched her life drift along. By contrast, the outsiders played by Seyfried, Lacy and Mackie are much less defined, but each actor brings just enough magnetic energy. The most wasted performer is June Squibb, as a ditzy old aunt who's little more than the requisite gross-out relative.

Zac and Eva are two children closed off from the entire world, they live with their parents on a remote farm with little communication and little outside influence. Their mother is a loving woman who takes care of her family to the best of her ability, and does her best to keep the children away from their father.
Though their father loves them, his strict rules and regulations enforced on the children are far from enjoyable. Under the cover of nightfall Zac & Eva both enjoy nothing more than escaping the confines of the house for a few moments enjoyment. Believing his children have always had a special gift, their father's rule is one of very tough love though it begins to all become too much for the rest of the family.
One and Two stars Mad Men's Kiernan Shipka & Timothée Chalamat as Eva and Zac respectively and was shot in in Columbia, Missouri, in 2010. One & Two was directed by Andrew Droz Palermo and written by Andrew and Neima Shahdadi.
Charlotte Cooper is determined to make this Christmas the best holiday the family has ever had, given that it's the only time of year when everyone's together. But, of course, while she and husband Sam are struggling to get everything perfect, everyone is equally struggling with other areas of their lives. Daughter Eleanor has been single for a while now, and the last thing she wants to do is arrive home without a boyfriend - again! And so, she convinces a soldier she meets at the airport to accompany her to her Christmas family reunion and pretend to be her partner, to which he reluctantly agrees. Meanwhile, the other daughter, Emma, gets in trouble with the police for jewel theft, and their son Hank has his work cut out when it comes to caring for his young daughter Madison alone; especially when she starts to learn some seriously unfriendly words.

Homeland actor Timotheé Chalamet should know what he's getting into, because Madonna seems like one strict potential mother-in-law.
The newest high profile celebrity romance might also hold the records for youngest celebs to be attached publicly – Timotheé Chalamet is dating Lourdes Leon. One is acting on the popular series ‘Homeland’, the other is a successful designer at 16 and the daughter of none other than Madonna herself. The pair met at the renowned LaGuardia High School of Music & Art & Performing Arts in NYC.
A source tells the New York Post it is 'common knowledge at the school that the pair are dating.' It’s debatable whether the new couple is boosting the profile of LaGuardia or the other way around. Last month Lurdes and Timotheé were featured, alongside other students at the prestigious school, New York Magazine's Reasons to Love New York issue, under the heading 'Because La Guardia High School is Still Churning Out Talent.' So they definitely look like a promising young couple.
It’s not all sunshine and roses though. Lurdes’s parents – Madge and actor and personal trainer Carlos Leon, definitely have some strict rules for their little girl and any potential boyfriends. When asked about Lourdes dating a few years ago, Leon said 'I'm dreading it... I want her to stay young forever. I'm already overprotective, so when the time comes, I will be ready to have a talk with the guy she brings through the door. He better be ready because I'll give him the run-down!'
