Synopsis

A wry coming-of-age comedy about 20-something Arthur who gets dumped by his girlfriend, moves back in with his parents and hits a quarter-life crisis. Arthur uses inheritance money to indulge in retail and new age therapies only to end up enlisting the help of an eccentric self-help guru, Dr. Ellington. Arthur’s painfully funny journey to define his existence brings to the fore the dysfunctional relationship he has with his parents and the importance in his life of his odd-ball friends. How To Be is a timely look at increasingly common phenomena: grown-up children living at home, frustrated creativity and self-help.
