Find Out How a Coffee Maker Can Stump a Grown Man in Exclusive Clip from ‘Nesting’

Four-slice toasters just don’t cut it anymore. Fridges aren’t worth a thing if they can’t make ice, filter water, and massage your head all at once. Ovens? They have to turn themselves on and knead the cookie dough beforehand. Modern appliances are daunting pieces of machinery these days, and few are more scary than the next wave of coffee makers. Kiss the Krups of yesteryear goodbye, and say hello to rigs that wouldn’t be out of place in a Starbucks. Is this what growing up means?

In John Chuldenko‘s Nesting, it kind of does. The film, starring Todd Grinnell and Ali Hillis, centers on a couple who aren’t quite settled into the idea of growing up and moving on with their lives – and their coffee maker isn’t helping matters. The pair embark on a fun trip to their past, hitting their old neighborhood and their favorite haunts from their early twenties, including their former apartment – which they start squatting in while they relive their supposed glory days. With a coffee maker like the one they’ve got sitting at their “real” home, you can’t really blame them for taking a break.

Afraid of modern kitchen appliance technology? Then this exclusive clip from Nesting is for you. Check it out after the break.

Nesting opens in New York City and Los Angeles this Friday, May 11.
