Noah Baumbach’s Greenberg – Featurette

Focus Features [Universal Pictures] release a behind-the-scene-slash-featurette of director Noah Baumbach’s Greenberg – which has star Ben Stiller and Rhys Ifans praising their film and luck-of-the-draw opportunity to work on strong characters. Check out the vid below –

In Greenberg, Ben Stiller’s titular character is at a crossroads in his life. Out of a job and none too interested in finding one, he agrees to housesit for his younger and more successful brother, thereby getting a free place to stay in Los Angeles. Once settled in, Greenberg sets out to reconnect with his old friend and former bandmate Rhys Ifans‘s Ivan. But times have changed, and old friends aren’t necessarily still best friends, so Greenberg finds himself spending more and more time instead with his brother’s personal assistant Greta Gerwig‘s Florence – an aspiring singer and herself something of a lost soul. As their relationship develops through a series of embarrassingly awkward romantic encounters, even someone as irascible as Greenberg might have at last found a reason to be happy.

Greenberg hits Los Angeles and New York theaters on Friday, March 19 and other cities on Friday, March 26.

Ben Stiller @ Greenberg – Trailer

I’ve seen all of director Noah Baumbach films and even though on the surface, Baumbach’s whitewash film characters appears unrelatable ’cause of their rich white-people problem. Nevertheless, I do end up enjoying his films. Anyhoo, Ben Stiller and underrated actress – Jennifer Jason Leigh – star in his latest effort – Greenberg – and the trailer is here for your consumption.

Ben Stiller’s Greenberg is at a crossroads in his life. Out of a job and none too interested in finding one, he agrees to housesit for his younger and more successful brother, thereby getting a free place to stay in Los Angeles. Once settled in, Greenberg sets out to reconnect with his old friend and former bandmate Ivan — [Rhys Ifans]. But times have changed, and old friends aren’t necessarily still best friends, so Greenberg finds himself spending more and more time instead with his brother’s personal assistant Florence – [Greta Gerwig] – an aspiring singer and herself something of a lost soul. As their relationship develops through a series of embarrassingly awkward romantic encounters, even someone as irascible as Greenberg might have at last found a reason to be happy.

Greenberg with psychostimulant-medication-in-tow rolls into New York & Los Angeles theaters on Friday, March 19 and goes wide-release in other cities on Friday, March 26.
