Synopsis

Autobiographical comedy written and directed by Harris Goldberg. Matthew Perry plays Hudson Milbank, a depressed screenwriter who is diagnosed with 'depersonalisation disorder', the sense that everything around him is unreal. Desperate to feel like himself again, Hudson seeks out every therapy imaginable, and plummets further into the depths of hopelessness and detachment. As he struggles to cope by watching the soothing Golf Channel, shoplifting to get a shot of adrenaline and surviving a cognitive behaviourist (Mary Steenburgen) with her own issues, Hudson's long-suffering writing partner (Kevin Pollack) fears they'll never work again. Things start to change when Hudson meets Sara (Lynn Collins), whose relaxed ways and big-hearted spirit make his race to recovery imperative.
