ZFF Gala Premiere AND SO IT GOES
The romantic comedy AND SO IT GOES, directed by Rob Reiner and written by Mark Andrus, tells the story of grumpy realtor Oren Little (Michael Douglas). Willfully obnoxious to anyone who might cross his path, Little wants nothing more than to sell one last house and retire in peace and quiet. While he's awaiting his big real estate break, he's biding his time in the waterfront four-plex building he owns surrounded by Neighbors who have formed a close-knit community that he mostly avoids. Even kindly Leah (Diane Keaton), who persists in inviting Oren, gets rebuffed. Oren's life gets turned upside-down when his estranged son Luke (Scott Shepherd) appears out of the blue, asking him to temporarily care for the nine-year-old granddaughter Sarah (Sterling Jerins) Oren never knew existed. Oren grudgingly agrees to take her in but quickly pawns her off on Leah. Over time, Sarah's need for love and affection bring Oren and Leah closer and allow them to see different sides of one another. Little by little, Oren begins to open his heart - to his family, to Leah, and to life itself.
