An excitable record dealer (Bene Coopersmith) tracks down a rare score, while his moping roommate regrets uploading revenge porn of his ex to the Internet. Nearby, a fidgety reporter (Michael Cera) investigates a suspicious suicide case mostly to impress his new protégé (Abbi Jacobson). At the same time, an obnoxiously analytical teen (Tavi Gavinson) ponders her sexuality when her best friend sets her up with a cute boy (Ben Rosenfeld).

These loosely-connected story threads weave about one another in Dustin Guy Defa’s low-key comedy. Shot on 16mm and scored by a hip soundtrack, the movie looks like a vintage ‘70s NYC film, but the characters all feel like over-written, fabricated creatures likely more at home in a Woody Allen flick than the real world. The film’s biggest achievement is in the way it captures a Brooklyn afternoon so dryly that it transcends its mundanity and practically feels poignant. That none of these storylines seems like more than an average day for any of these characters is the most authentically New York thing about it.
