Storyline

Thomas Webb, the son of a publisher and his artistic wife, has just graduated from college and is trying to find his place in the world. Moving from his parents' Upper West Side apartment to the Lower East Side, he befriends his neighbor W.F., a shambling alcoholic writer who dispenses worldly wisdom alongside healthy shots of whiskey. Thomas' world begins to shift when he discovers that his long-married father is having an affair with a seductive younger woman. Determined to break up the relationship, Thomas ends up sleeping with his father's mistress, launching a chain of events that will change everything he thinks he knows about himself and his family.

An unexpected and truly satisfying night at the movies.
19 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

Zounds! Thank heaven I didn't see another site's 31% rating before I went to a WGA screening of "The Only Living Boy In New York," because I might have given it a pass. I LOVED it! I'd give it a 99.9% rating (after all, nobody's perfect). What a joy. Allan Loeb's intelligent and serious script is liberally sprinkled with laugh-out-loud lines and Marc Webb's masterfully fluid direction is stunning. Like watching a French film… I almost expected subtitles. Webb made love to New York as if it was Paris. Flawless casting, Jeff Bridges is brilliant. Stellar performances all-round. Wonderful title sequence. And that fantastic sound track—thrilling! See for yourself.
