Second Best | 2005
Set in a New Jersey neighborhood, a group of regular guys launch into a tirade of introspection when their longtime friend and successful Hollywood producer has a homecoming. No one feels the gap more acutely than his best friend, a failed publishing exec, working on a screenplay, living in Jersey, wallowing in denial. Things are definitely not looking up. He dreams that his friend will be his ticket out, but his own ego may be both his downfall and salvation.
