“He wrote the book on life’s big questions. But the truth is he hasn’t got a clue.”
Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “Everyone wants to meet Arlen Faber, the world famous author of the best-selling spiritual book Me and God, but crotchety, disgruntled Arlen simply wants to be left alone—and so far he’s been successful in keeping his identity a secret. But all that changes when troubled bookstore owner Kris Lucas discovers his home address and barters books for Arlen’s words of wisdom, and a back injury leads the reclusive writer to begin dating chiropractor and overprotective single mother Elizabeth. As Arlen’s relationships with his newfound friends begin to grow, he must come to terms with his past and the realization that he doesn’t hold all the answers.
From first-time director John Hindman, comes ‘The Answer Man,’ a romantic comedy starring Jeff Daniels (“The Squid and the Whale”), Lauren Graham (“Gilmore Girls”) and Lou Taylor Pucci (“Thumbsucker”). Arlen Faber (Daniels) is the reclusive author of Me and God, a book that has redefined spirituality for an entire generation and has been translated into over 100 languages. On the eve of the 20th anniversary of his still wildly popular book, Arlen is still sought after as the man who has all the answers.
Arlen’s life collides with Elizabeth (Graham), a single mom raising her seven year-old son, and Kris (Taylor Pucci), a young man fresh out of rehab who is searching for meaning. Both Elizabeth and Kris are hopeful that Arlen has the answers, but the truth is, he hasn’t got a clue. The film also stars Kat Dennings (“Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist”) and Olivia Thirlby (“Juno”).”
