Another Happy Day is an emotional family drama that revolves around Lynn (Ellen Barkin), a divorced mother, who is preparing for her son's wedding at her ex-husband's home in Annapolis. Lynn is dealing with her own challenges, including a strained relationship with her oldest son Elliot (Ezra Miller), who is dealing with drug addiction and self-harm issues.

Ellen Barkin delivers a powerful performance as Lynn, a woman who is desperately trying to hold her family together despite the many obstacles in her way. She is constantly battling with her ex-husband Paul (Thomas Haden Church) and his new wife, Patty (Demi Moore), who seems to have it all together on the surface but is clearly hiding a deep inner pain.

Ezra Miller is also outstanding in his role as Elliot, a troubled teenager who is struggling to find his place in the world. He is constantly pushing his mother's buttons and causing chaos in the household, but it is clear that he is hurting and in need of help.

Kate Bosworth is also excellent as Lynn's daughter Alice, who is dealing with her own marital problems and a strained relationship with her brother.
