Peter Bogdanovich is back, with a screwball comedy titled “She’s Funny that Way, ” declares IndyWire, suggesting the comeback is rich in starry names: Owen Wilson, Imogen Poots, Jennifer Aniston, Kathryn Hahn, Tatum O’Neal, Rhys Ifans, Will Forte and Lucy Punch.
Bogdanovich’s first new film in ten years, will be screened at the Venice Film Festival, and you’re welcome to a taste of these two clips, to whet your appetite.
Bogdanovic’s mother, Herma (née Robinson), was an Austrian Jew.
The film is set in the world of the theater, with the story of a married Broadway producer (Wilson) attempting to convince a call-girl (Poots) to change her life.
Except it’s screwball, so the story quickly spreads into multiple tales, with the characters running in and out of each other’s paths.
