Nicole Holofcener on Working With Netflix and Why She Wants to Make a Thriller

Nicole Holofcener is a master at making audiences care about people who are behaving badly. Anders Hill, the protagonist of Holofcener’s latest film, “The Land of Steady Habits,” does unforgivable things. He leaves his family, quits his job, falls behind in the mortgage payments, and, most deplorably, mentors a drug addicted teenager in unorthodox ways that help lead to tragic results. Yet because Holofcener is such a humanist as a writer and a director and because the film’s star Ben Mendelsohn plays Anders so deftly, you still care what happens to him. You even kind of like him. The film begins streaming on Netflix on Sept. 14. – Brent Lang, Variety https://ift.tt/2MdkmSE
