The Land of Steady Habits | Official Trailer | Netflix.
Anders (Ben Mendelsohn) Hill has recently divorced his wife Helene (Edie Falco) and quit his job in finance for an early retirement, and is having a difficult time coping. Anders' adult son Preston (Thomas Mann) is a recovering drug addict who still lives with Helene in the family home that Anders has left. Preston, who attended Northwestern University, is working as a paid reading specialist alongside his mother who got him the job.
Anders remains enamoured of his ex-wife, despite his string of one night stands since their divorce. He shows up at the annual Christmas party she co-hosts with Sophie Ashford (Elizabeth Marvel), a neighbor and friend of Helene. Isolated at the party, he goes outside and joins Sophie and Mitchell's son Charlie and some of Charlie's friends. They urge Anders to smoke from a bong, and he is surprised to discover afterwards that the marijuana was laced with PCP. Later at the party, Charlie overdoses and is taken to the hospital. Anders tells his therapist that he smoked drugs with Charlie at the Christmas party, and is caught off guard to learn that his therapist was also in attendance.
Anders, who is still the official owner of the family home he has left to Helene and therefore responsible for the mortgage, has fallen six months behind on payments and realizes that he cannot afford to retire as well as pay off the house. He approaches a friend for a loan; however, the friend instead takes Anders to a strip club where he meets Barbara (Connie Britton), a woman who is on a date. Anders and Barbara hit it off and end up sharing a cab home, and in his drunken stupor, Anders gives his old address and enters his old house with the key he still has, upsetting Helene, Preston, and Helene's boyfriend Donny. Helene is eventually forced to fire Preston after he accepts $2,000 dollars from an illiterate man and uses the money to play in a poker game. Preston also reveals to Helene that Anders cannot pay off the mortgage of the home they used to share.
