Listen Up Philip

Friday, October 17 - Thursday, November 13, 2014

As prickly up-and-coming New York author Philip Lewis Friedman (Jason Schwartzman) awaits the inevitable success of his second novel, he feels increasingly alienated from his crumbling relationship with photographer girlfriend Ashley (Elisabeth Moss). When a Roth-ish idol (Jonathan Pryce) offers his isolated summer home as a refuge, Philip retreats deeper into himself as his life, and those of everyone around him, spiral quickly out of control. Perry’s ambitious literary comedy marks him as a talent to watch. Co-starring Krysten Ritter.
