Safe Spaces



Josh (Justin Long, Dodgeball) has a lot going on. His job as an adjunct writing professor is being threatened after a student accused him of being inappropriate in class. And his beloved grandmother (Lynn Cohen) is in the hospital, meaning his divorced parents (Fran Drescher, The Nanny, and Richard Schiff, The West Wing) and siblings (including Kate Berlant, Sorry to Bother You) need to all come together. This candid and often-humorous take on how we deal with modern crises, both unexpected and self-inflicted, is a testament to the importance of family — no matter how dysfunctional.
