Ryden Malby (Alexis Bledel) is an aspiring book editor and excited about life after college. She expects to land the perfect job and be well on her way to a successful career and life. But as so many post-graduates have experienced, even the most well-laid plans don’t always pan out. Ryden doesn’t land her dream job, and with her car on the fritz and no way to pay the rent, she faces the inevitable: It’s time to move back home.
It’s unpleasant feeling as if you’re going backward, but it is especially hard going back into the arms of a quirky family. Ryden’s mother is all too glad to have her back; her father schemes to keep her from focusing on her career; her chain-smoking grandmother is always planning her own funeral; and her baby brother communicates through a sock puppet. This is not exactly how Ryland envisioned life after college. But she soon realizes that sometimes the road to success and happiness isn’t always a straight path but more a winding road. This film is rated PG-13 for sexual situations and brief strong language.
