They own the unit next door to them and once the flat becomes vacant, they plan to knock out a wall and take over the space. Their tenant is an elderly woman who doesn’t seem eager to go anywhere soon. The film, which also stars Rebecca Hall and Amanda Peet, evolves into a knowing comedy of manners filled with amusing human observations.
