Growing up is never easy, and it sure as hell doesn’t get any better when you’re convinced that your old life (and the younger version of you) was the better existence of the two. In John Chuldenko‘s Nesting, thirtysomething couple Neil (Todd Grinnell, who looks and sounds like an indie Paul Rudd) and Sarah (Ali Hillis) find that their “grown-up” lives aren’t all they’re cracked up to be – packed with “nesting,” picking out furniture that has color names based on snack foods, and knowing stupid trivia about The Bachelor (of all things). Unhappy in their current lives, Neil and Sarah decide to take a trip down memory lane, and right back into the neighborhoods they spent their twenties in (Angelenos will recognize scads of Silver Lake and Echo Park locations from this first trailer alone).

However, Neil and Sarah aren’t content with just visiting their old lives – they want to slip right back into them. And that includes breaking into their old apartment and setting up shop, like some hipster version of old-timey homesteaders. Well, more specifically, they’re criminals now, but when they start having a good time again, it looks like their illegal activities might just end up paying off. At the very least, they get to throw some pretty cool after-parties. After the break, get hip to Neil and Sarah’s wicked party with Nesting‘s first trailer.

Nesting opens in limited release on May 11. [Apple]
