A guilt-stricken schmuck (Nick Kroll) spends a lifetime playing seeing-eye dog to an insufferably handicapable blind brother (Adam Scott) until the two fall under the spell of the same emotional wreck (Jenny Slate). What starts as a ground-fine comedic broadside against those who brandish their physical disabilities with a sense of entitlement comes dangerously close to slipping into sitcom territory before belting its audience with a cheap, curtain-ringing twist. First-time director Sophie Goodhart coaxes a grown-up performance out of Kroll, and Scott’s smarmy contentiousness has never been put to better use. Once again, all eyes are on the confoundingly springy Ms. Slate (Obvious Child), a wild child who sleeps with the first guy she meets at her ex-boyfriend’s wake and manages to run circles around the competition even though the script never makes fully clear her character’s intentions. With Zoe Kazan. (2016) — Scott Marks
