Movie Story: Rachel is a writer whose new novel is about to be published. Her husband, Richard, used to run an experimental theater and now, without undue sourness, runs an artisanal pickle company. The couple live in a cluttered, cozy apartment on an East Village block not yet overrun by money. They are literate, witty people (played by Kathryn Hahn and Paul Giamatti) who might rather be smart than nice but are generally pretty nice anyway, even to each other. Their mutual prickliness is a sign of long intimacy, as if they were two cut-to-match pieces of sandpaper. Over the years of their relationship — he’s 47, she’s about a half-decade younger — neither one has been too badly scraped up or smoothed out by the other.
