"No matter where you go, there you are."


Watch Ben Mendelsohn in the trailer for The Land of Steady Habits


Writer/director Nicole Holofcener (Enough Said, Friends with Money) brings us a drama about parenting, loss and the consequences of our self-destructive behaviour. The story features a deeply flawed male protagonist whose tragic mistakes impact and inform the complex relationships in his life. Far from a recognizable tale of a middle-aged rake in crisis, this is an emotionally resonant portrait of a fractured family explored by one of our most keenly observant directors.

Anders Hill (Ben Mendelsohn), long ensconced in “the land of steady habits” – the affluent hamlets of Connecticut that dot the commuter rail line – is finally ready to reap the rewards of a sensible life. Into his mid-fifties and newly retired, his grown son’s college tuitions paid in full, Anders decides he’s had enough of steady habits: he leaves his wife (Edie Falco), buys a condo, and waits for freedom to transform him.

Stripped of the comforts of his previous identity, Anders embarks on a clumsy, and heartbreaking journey to reconcile his past with his present.

The film stars Ben Mendelsohn, Thomas Mann, Edie Falco, Elizabeth Marvel, Connie Britton, Charlie Tahan, Bill Camp, Josh Pais, and Michael Gaston.

It is based on the 2014 novel of the same name by Ted Thompson.

The Land of Steady Habits hits Netflix on September 14th.
