Focus World Grabs ‘Ruth & Alex,’ Starring Morgan Freeman & Diane Keaton

Focus World Grabs 'Ruth & Alex,' Starring Morgan Freeman & Diane Keaton

Directed by Richard Loncraine from Charlie Peters’ script, the film world-premiered earlier this month in Toronto, where critics were mixed but affectionate toward the cast.

Keaton and Freeman play a long-married couple who, over one weekend, debate selling their Brooklyn walk-up. Throw in Cynthia Nixon, the family dog and a raft of open-house guests and everything goes comically nutty.

"Ruth & Alex" is based on Jill Ciment’s book "Heroic Measures." Release date forthcoming.
