The play is set in the West Village, partly in the house that Gladys, the child of Russian Jewish immigrants, bought with her husband, in the nineteen-forties. She lives in one apartment in her building, while Daniel, who works for the Environmental Protection Agency, lives in another. He is occasionally too enamored of his cranks, whose crustiness he equates with truthtelling. Salinger before him, Lonergan is attuned to the beauty of surfaces—what people say and how they say it. H oward : Jesus Christ. She sounds delightful.

One person Dennis can always feel superior to is his friend Warren the beautiful and beautifully cast Michael Cera.

Where does Warren plan to stay? Maybe he can stay at a hotel; maybe he can stay with Dennis. Culkin gets to shine in the flashier role, and Gevinson toggles amusingly between prim ingenue and panicked urbanite.
