Event Description
MoMA PopRally Presents Listen Up Philip

Tickets for this event are now sold out.

Join MoMA PopRally as we celebrate The Contenders 2014 with a special screening of Alex Ross Perry’s Listen Up Philip, starring Jason Schwartzman and Elisabeth Moss. After the screening, Perry and Moss participate in a conversation with Josh Siegel, Curator, MoMA Department of Film, followed by a reception featuring DJ Le Chev.

Alex Ross Perry’s breakthrough success, an acidic comedy about the petty jealousies and spiteful rivalries of the New York literary set, features a never-better Jason Schwartzman as Philip Lewis Friedman, the insufferably needy and superior would-be second novelist; the ever-brilliant Elizabeth Moss as his long-suffering girlfriend Ashley Kane, who wrests herself from his overweening ambitions to pursue a successful photography career of her own; and Jonathan Pryce as Ike Zimmerman, the midcentury modernist Jewish author—and Philip’s idol and foil—who represents the path perilously taken. “Words do more than hurt,” Manohla Dargis writes in The New York Times, “they also slash and burn in this sharp, dyspeptic, sometimes gaspingly funny exploration of art and life, men and women, being and nonbeing, and the power and limits of language.” Courtesy of Tribeca Film. 108 min. 

For the annual Contenders series, MoMA’s Department of Film combs through major studio releases and the top film festivals in the world, selecting influential, innovative films made in the past 12 months that we believe will stand the test of time. 

Special thanks to Sud de France wines: Jaja de Jau and Gilles Louvet. Beer for this event has been provided by Brooklyn Brewery.
