Watch Morgan Freeman & Diane Keaton Play a Brooklyn Couple w/ Real Estate Issues in Trailer for '5 Flights Up'

After world premiering at the 39th edition of the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) last fall, director Richard Loncraine’s dramedy, initially titled “Ruth & Alex,” which stars Morgan Freeman and Diane Keaton, was picked up by Focus and now has a May 8 theatrical release debut set.

Currently titled “5 Flights Up,” the film tells a story that takes place over a long weekend, when an older New York couple (played by Freeman and Keaton, an artist and a retired teacher) try to sell their East Village apartment, where they’ve lived for 40 years, and for which there is a huge bidding war, leading to various unexpected real estate-related issues they have to resolve. And as the couple makes an offer on a new apartment, they look back on years of memories they made in their old home.

Cynthia Nixon co-stars in the film, along with Michael Cristofer, Claire Vanderboom, Korey Jackson, Carrie Preston, Sterling Jerins, Josh Pais, and Miriam Shor.

The screenplay was written by Charlie Peters.

Rated PG-13, watch the first trailer for “5 Flights Up” below:
