Straight From Sundance: Teaser Trailer “Listen Up Philip”

Premiering on Monday January 20th at 5:30PM at the Library in Park City at Sundance Film Festival 2014, LATF USA brings you a teaser trailer of “Listen Up Philip.”

Featuring Jason Schwartzman, Elisabeth Moss, Jonathan Pryce, Krysten Ritter, Joséphine de La Baume, Jess Weixler, Dree Hemingway, Keith Poulson, with special narration by Eric Bogosian

Anger rages in Philip (Jason Schwartzman) as he awaits the publication of his sure-to-succeed second novel. He feels pushed out of his adopted home city by the constant crowds and noise, a deteriorating relationship with his photographer girlfriend Ashley (Elisabeth Moss), and his own indifference to promoting the novel.  When Philip’s idol Ike Zimmerman (Jonathan Pryce)offers his isolated summer home as a refuge, he finally gets the peace and quiet to focus on his favorite subject—himself.

Following up his critically-acclaimed THE COLOR WHEEL, Alex Ross Perry scripts a complex, intimate and highly idiosyncratic comedy filled with New Yorkers living their lives somewhere between individuality and isolation. Schwartzman leads an impressive cast including Elisabeth Moss, Krysten Ritter and Jonathan Pryce, balancing Perry’s quick-witted dialogue and their characters’ painful, personal truths.  With narration by Eric Bogosian, we switch perspectives as seasons and attitudes change, offering a literary look into the lives of these individuals and the triumph of reality over the human spirit.

LISTEN UP PHILIP was produced by Washington Square Films (the company’s follow-up film to the acclaimed ALL IS LOST) and Sailor Bear Productions, the team behind last year’s Sundance hit AIN’T THEM BODIES SAINTS.
