WATCH: Jason Schwartzman Tries To Get Ahead In “Listen Up Philip” Trailer

Alex Ross Perry's film starring Schwartzman, Elisabeth Moss, and Jonathan Pryce gets a new trailer, and a theatrical release date.

From our introduction to Philip Lewis Friedman through the freshly released theatrical trailer for Listen Up Philip, we’re aware that Friedman (played by the delightfully neurotic Jason Schwartzman) is an intelligent young writer living in Manhattan. While his star seems to be rising before the release of his second novel, Obidant, Friedman meets his literary idol (the masterful Jonathan Pryce), becomes his freeloading protégé, and remembers what truly matters most in this world: himself.

With a stellar cast including Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men) and Krysten Ritter (Breaking Bad) in place, director Alex Ross Perry’s festival darling film finally has a wide theatrical release date (October 17), as well as a separate date for the film’s availability via VOD/iTunes (October 21). Check out the brand new trailer below now.
