The New York Film Critics Series screening for July will feature a special preview of the new romantic comedy And So it Goes, directed by Rob Reiner (The Princes Bride, When Harry Met Sally), and featuring the first-ever onscreen pairing of acclaimed actors Michael Douglas and Diane Keaton. In And So it Goes, a cranky, self-centered realtor (Douglas) enlists the help of his reluctant neighbor (Keaton) when he’s suddenly left in charge of the granddaughter he never knew existed until his estranged son drops her off at his home. Can the two highly-mismatched neighbors learn to overcome their differences in order to take care of this unexpected “bundle of joy, and maybe even find love in the process? (Dir. by Rob Reiner, 2014, USA, 100 mins., Rated PG-13, Clarius Entertainment) Digital
