Ahead of its Sundance premiere, writer/director Alex Ross Perry’s third film “Listen Up Philip” has released its first official teaser trailer. Perry’s follow-up to his critically acclaimed “The Color Wheel” stars Jason Schwartzman as the title character, along with Krysten Ritter, Elisabeth Moss, Jess Weixler and Jonathan Pryce.
The New York-set comedy takes us through the life of Philip, a novelist whose impeding success leads him to escape the annoyances of his overwhelming surroundings and hide out in his idol’s isolated summer home. The character-driven teaser features shots of everyone who plays a role in Philip’s life talking to the camera to either praise his brilliant mind or chastise him for his exhausting personality.
“Listen Up Philip” premieres at Sundance on January 20th.
