Eric Bogosian has signed on to narrate Alex Ross Perry’s “Listen Up Philip” which will have its world premiere at the upcoming 2014 Sundance Film Festival.
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, Jonathan Pryce and Krysten Ritter, balancing Perry’s quick-witted dialogue and their characters’ painful, personal truths. The film switches 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.
