CHICAGO – “Drinking Buddies” director Joe Swanberg’s latest release of the same star wattage is “Happy Christmas,” an even lower-fi story than the Olivia Wilde beer comedy, steered even more by the casting that it was able to assemble. However, with this movie Swanberg doesn’t so much worry about having a story that could be confused with a more mainstream romantic comedy if it were to have a bigger budget.

Here is “The Greatest” plot description:
An award-winning drama that represents Shana Feste’s debut as a writer and director, “The Greatest” stars Pierce Brosnan and Susan Sarandon as Allen and Grace Brewer. They’re a grief-stricken couple whose family has been pushed to the breaking point by the death of their older son, Bennett, in a car crash.
When a young woman, Rose, (Cary Mulligan) shows up a few months later announcing that she is pregnant with Bennett’s child, the Brewers are forced to take her in. At first, Rose’s presence threatens to tear the family even further apart. Eventually, her interaction with each of the Brewers proves to be the very thing that brings them back together.
