Starting Out in the Evening
horizontal line

While an aging, workaholic, widowed novelist (Frank Langella) who relishes his privacy and has been on the back burner of the literary world for years cautiously and somewhat reluctantly agrees to let a cheeky, tenacious, ambitious graduate student (Lauren Ambrose) interview him at his New York City apartment and get into his head and eventually his bed for a comparative critical analysis of his work that she is writing for her master’s thesis in this compelling, well-acted film with well-rounded characters and a smoldering undercurrent, his 40-year-old daughter (Lili Taylor) is at a romantic crossroads trying to come to terms with her relationship with a smitten lawyer and an old flame (Adrian Lester).
