In Listen Up Philip, Jason Schwartzman is a novelist who uses his professional struggles as an excuse to alienate everyone in his personal life. The film was developed by the North Texas production company Sailor Bear, and this week, we talk to one of its principals – James Johnston – about what it took to make the movie. And we give him a chance to glow in the rave review from The New York Times.
Listen Up Philip opens at the Texas Theatre on Friday.
