Rosemarie DeWitt in First Trailer for Rom-Com 'Song of Back and Neck'
"You say you're not happy, but you won't change anything." The Orchard has debuted the official trailer for an indie romantic comedy called Song of Back and Neck, the directorial debut of actor / producer Paul Lieberstein, which first premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival. Lieberstein stars in the film, and also writes, directs, and produces making this very much his own personal project. The amusing film is about an ill-fated, middle-aged divorce lawyer who suffers from chronic back and neck pain, who falls for one of his clients while also discovering an acupuncturist who helps him deal with the pain. In addition to Lieberstein, the film co-stars Rosemarie DeWitt as his love interest, with a full cast including Brian d'Arcy James, Clark Duke, Paul Feig, Robert Pine, Sam Anderson, Raymond Ma, and Ike Barinholtz. Have fun.
Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Paul Lieberstein's Song of Back and Neck, direct from YouTube:
