SYNOPSIS: From first-time writer-director John Hindman, comes THE ANSWER MAN, a romantic comedy starring Jeff Daniels (The Squid and the Whale) and Lauren Graham (Gilmore Girls) about love and the search for meaning. Arlen Faber (Daniels) is the reclusive and misanthropic author of “Me and God,” a book that has redefined spirituality for an entire generation and has been translated into over 100 languages. On the eve of the 20th anniversary of his still wildly popular book, Arlen is still sought after as the man who has all the answers. Arlen find his world turned upside down with his life collides with Elizabeth (Graham), a single mother who might just be able to provide the salvation he needs. In addition, Arlen forms an unlikely friendship with Kris (“Thumbsucker’s” Lou Taylor Pucci), a young man fresh out of rehab who is searching for meaning. Both Elizabeth and Kris are hopeful that Arlen has the answers, but the truth is, he hasn’t got a clue. Kat Dennings (Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist) and Olivia Thirlby (Juno) also star in this charmingly witty romantic drama.

THE ANSWER MAN will open in Washington, DC on Friday, July 31st.
