The film is based on the short story of the same name by acclaimed American author EL Doctorow.

Published in the New Yorker in 2008, it tells the story of a man who leaves his wife - played by 43-year-old Jennifer Garner - and moves into the attic above his garage and lives there for several months. 

The Breaking Bad star was almost unrecogniseble as he emerged from the make-up trailer with long scraggly hair and impressive bushy beard to match.
