Jake (Josh Lawson) and his buddies (Adam Brody, Wyatt Cenac, Danny Jacobs) were living it up in their 20s in New York City, but now reality is setting in. Jake’s growing up and still hasn’t made it as an artist in the Big Apple, so he opts to head home to Ohio. But before he goes, he wants to do one last thing – walk the entire length of Manhattan revisiting the great times he’s had with his friends.
The first Growing Up and Other Lies trailer just dropped and while it does have a light buddy comedy/romcom vibe to it, if you’ve ever tried to make it as an artist in New York City, or in any profession for that matter, odds are, you can connect to the more serious emotions Jake is dealing with. I know I certainly can. Growing Up and Other Lies hits theaters and On Demand on March 20th. The film also stars Amber Tamblyn and Lauren Miller.

Here’s the official synopsis for Growing Up and Other Lies:
After struggling for years as an artist in New York City, Jake is calling it quits and returning home to Ohio. On his last day in the city, he persuades his three oldest friends to help him retrace their greatest adventure together: a walk down the entire length of Manhattan. But their attempt to reclaim the glory of their early 20s doesn’t go quite as planned.
Over the course of the day, buried conflicts emerge as Jake becomes embroiled with his ex-girlfriend and his friends dip into their own crises of manhood. GROWING UP AND OTHER LIES is an anti-coming-of-age comedy.
