The Color Wheel helmer Alex Ross Perry‘s follow-up is comedic drama Listen Up Philip, which nabbed a berth in Sundance‘s Next sidebar and premieres Monday evening at the Library Center Theatre — the director and stars Jason Schwartzman, Elisabeth Moss, Jonathan Pryce, Krysten Ritter, and Josephine de La Baume will attend, we’re told. The plot centers on Philip (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 girlfriend (Moss), and his own indifference to promoting the book. When Philip’s idol Ike Zimmerman (Pryce) offers his isolated summer home as a refuge, he finally gets the peace and quiet to focus on his favorite subject — himself. The pic is produced by Washington Square Films (All Is Lost) and Sailor Bear Productions, the team behind last year’s Sundance seller Ain’t Them Bodies Saints. Here’s a trailer:
