Eureka! to release Listen Up Philip in UK cinemas and VOD in June

18 May 2015

Eureka! Entertainment have announced the UK theatrical release of Listen Up Philip. Following up his critically acclaimed The Color Wheel, Alex Ross Perry scripts a complex, intimate and highly idiosyncratic comedy filled with New Yorkers living their lives somewhere between individuality and isolation. Jason Schwartzman leads an impressive cast including Elisabeth Moss, Krysten Ritter and Jonathan Pryce, balancing Perry’s quick-witted dialogue and their characters’ painful, personal truths. With narration by Eric Bogosian, we switch perspectives as seasons and attitudes change, offering a literary look into the lives of these individuals and the triumph of reality over the human spirit.

Anger rages in Philip (Jason Schwartzman) 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), and his own indifference to promoting the novel. When Philip’s idol Ike Zimmerman (Jonathan Pryce) offers his isolated summer home as a refuge, he finally gets the peace and quiet to focus on his favourite subject – himself. Philip faces mistakes and miseries affecting those around him, including his girlfriend, her sister, his idol, his idol’s daughter, and all the ex-girlfriends and enemies that lie in wait on the open streets of New York.

“Think Woody Allen meets Wes Anderson for this smart, stinging Manhattan tale of a self-absorbed young novelist” – Marie Claire

Listen Up Philip will be released in selected cinemas nationwide in the UK and Ireland & VOD on 5th June 2015.
