Listen Up Philip Directed by Alex Ross Perry, 2015
“Listen Up Philip” is a literarylook at the triumph of reality over the human spirit. Anger rages in Philip (Jason Schwartzman, Rushmore, The Grand Budapest Hotel) 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, Mad Men, The One I Love), and his indifference to promoting his own work. When Philip’s idol Ike Zimmerman (Jonathan Pryce, Brazil, Pirates of the Caribbean) offers his isolated summer home as a refuge, he finally gets the peace and quiet to focus on his favorite subject — himself.
