- LA, in the 30s. Young Bobby Dorfman (Jesse Eisenberg) arrives in Hollywood looking to get a job in the office of his uncle, Phil (Steve Carell), a veteran and powerful agent. Bobby is the youngest son of a Jewish family in 1930s New York City; his elder sister Evelyn is a married school teacher, while his elder brother Ben is a gangster. Discontented with working for his father, a jeweler, Bobby decides to move to Hollywood, where he takes a job running menial errands for his uncle Phil (Steve Carell), a powerhouse talent agent. Phil introduces Bobby to his secretary Veronica, nicknamed Vonnie (Kristen Stewart), who is tasked with helping Bobby settle into Hollywood. Bobby is drawn to her unpretentiousness as opposed to most young women living in Hollywood, and falls deeply in love with her.
