Love, friendship and tons of beer – what more do you need to be happy? Luke (Johnson) works at a Chicago brewery and faces an impossible choice. Should he break up with his adorable girlfriend, Jill (who prefers wine to beer), to see if a romance would fly with Kate, his best friend and colleague at work (who loves beer above all)? Since Anna Kendrick plays the former and Olivia Wilde the latter, the decision would be too much for a character in a well-planned romantic comedy. While Joe Swanberg (himself a beer lover) casts Hollywood stars, he works in his usual manner, i.e. without a script, leaving them to improvise in situations he has merely sketched. He succeeds fabulously, thanks to the tremendous chemistry brewed between the three actors.
Joe Swanberg (b. August 31, 1981, Detroit) is an independent American film director, screenwriter, producer, editor, and actor. Considered the father of the mumblecore genre, his retrospective was featured at the 2011 American Film Festival. Swanberg graduated with a degree in Film Studies from Southern Illinois University Carbondale.

He has produced nearly 20 films and his web series, Young American Bodies (2006), co-produced by his fiancée, is available at www.nervevideo.com.
