The USCB Center for the Arts presents the film “Listen Up Philip” on Monday, Nov. 3 at 7 p.m.
“Listen Up Philip,” an independent film directed by Alex Ross Perry, stars Jason Schwartzman, Elisabeth Moss and Jonathan Pryce. It was the Official Selection for the 2014 New York Film Festival and premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival.
A complex, intimate, and highly idiosyncratic comedy, “Listen Up Philip” is a literary look at 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 indifference to promoting his own work. 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 favorite subject — himself.
Tickets are $7 for adults, $6 seniors, and $7 for students. The Center for the Arts is located at 801 Carteret Street, Beaufort, SC, 29902. Contact the box office at 843-521-4145 or email email@example.com or visit www.uscbcenterforthearts.com.
