Already presented to great acclaim at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival, "Momma's Man" reunites THINKFilm with the producers of their 2006 indie hit "Half Nelson." In this warm, witty and wise comedy, 30-something Mikey (Matt Boren) comes to New York on a business trip and stays in his parents' downtown loft. When his consulting job is finished, instead of returning home to his wife and newborn, Mikey finds an excuse to stay on. And on. Holed up in his childhood bedroom, Mikey prefers life before responsibilities to life the way it is. But his parents' growing unease, and the mounting pressure from his own family, threatens his temporary break from reality.
