The Great New Wonderful is a film written by Sam Catlin and directed by Danny Leiner.


The Great New Wonderful is a series of vignettes of incidents taking place concurrently around Manhattanmarker. The only other thing linking the incidents is the month in which they occur: September 2002. Recurring themes include Frustration and Sugar.

The vignettes include:

  • An accountant (Jim Gaffigan) undergoing a therapy session in the office of a passive-aggressive psychologist (Tony Shalhoub).

  • Two immigrants from India on security detail for a visiting dignitary.

  • An ambitious pastry chef (Maggie Gyllenhaal) preparing a professional pitch that she hopes will make her the reigning doyenne of New York's competitive cake scene.

  • A Brooklyn housewife (Olympia Dukakis) fixes her husband's dinner and then sits at the kitchen table making collages out of old magazines while her husband sits on the balcony, smoking a cigarette.

  • Allison & David Burbage (Judy Greer, Tom McCarthy) struggle to keep their marriage together while coping with their increasingly difficult and strangely self-possessed 10-year-old son.
