The Oranges is a comedy about two families who have been lifelong friends, and the hilarity that ensues when a rebellious daughter returns home for the holidays and causes a scandal. David and Paige Walling (Hugh Laurie, Catherine Keener) and Terry and Cathy Ostroff (Oliver Platt, Allison Janney) are best friends and neighbors living on Orange Drive in suburban New Jersey. Their comfortable existence goes awry when prodigal daughter Nina Ostroff (Leighton Meester), newly broken up with her fiancé, returns home for Thanksgiving after a five-year absence. Rather than developing an interest in their neighbor's successful son Toby Walling (Adam Brody), which would please both families, it's Toby's father David who captures Nina's attention. When the connection between Nina and David becomes undeniable, everyone's lives are thrown into upheaval. It's not long before the ramifications of the affair begin to work on all of the family members in unexpected and hilarious ways, leading everyone to reawaken to their lives and reassess what it means to be happy.
