Listen Up Philip is a wonderful new comedy with a great cast including Jason Schwartzman, Elisabeth Moss and one of my all-time favourite actors, Jonathan Pryce.
Anger rages in Philip (Jason Schwartzman) as he awaits the publication of his 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.
Also starring Krysten Ritter, Jess Weixler, Kate Lyn Sheil, Dree Hemingway, Joséphine de La Baume and Eric Bogosian, Listen Up Philip is also written and directed by Alex Ross Perry, and hasn’t yet got a release date anywhere but I hope we get it in the UK soon as it looks fantastic.
