With misgivings and outright dread, Sam Bentley, newly graduated from Harvard Medical School, goes with his blue-blood girlfriend/fiancee, Alex Elliott, back to his mother's house in Los Angeles while he begins his residency in psychiatry at UCLA. Estranged from his pot-smoking, sexually liberated,record producer mother, Sam finds her unchanged, except for her new boyfriend, a band singer named Ian. As Sam settles into his residency and is befriended by a Sara Golan, he gently deflects their mutual attraction by his own loyalty to Alex, yet he eventually finds that, true to form, his mother and her lifestyle has yet again upended his own life. © 2003 Kuleshov Productions, LLC.
