Listen Up Philip

Jason Schwartzman (Rushmore) headlines this acerbic, literary-minded comedy as an angry, narcissistic author awaiting publication of his second, make-or-break novel. Pushed out of Brooklyn by constant crowds and a deteriorating relationship with his photographer girlfriend (Elisabeth Moss, "Mad Men"), our protagonist is offered the opportunity of a lifetime: a stay at the isolated summer home of his literary idol (played by Jonathan Pryce of Brazil). Ultra-indie director Alex Ross Perry (Impolex, The Color Wheel) is more or less offering up a high-toned critique of notoriously antisocial author Philip Roth with this one. 109 minutes Unrated.
