Robert Schwartzman makes his directorial debut with this comedy about dreams and the costs paid to reach them. Part-time pianist and full-time underdog Monty Fagan (Johnny Simmons) fills in on the ivories at an upscale hotel and the seemingly dead-end assignment sets into motion a May-December romance that upends his home life and dramatically reshapes his worldview. As Monty says early on about the requirements of a quality music performance, 'Sometimes you have to step back and contemplate what it is you're doing.'
