I've long been a fan of Zoe Kazan. She's never quite broken through yet, but with wonderful performances in small but terrific films like Happythankyoumoreplease (written and directed by Josh Radnor of How I Met Your Mother), Me and Orson Welles, and Ruby Sparks, which she also wrote and directed, and deserved a much better fate.
By accident while looking for something else, I just came across the trailer for an upcoming movie for the Fall, titled What If”. It not only looks charming, thoughtful and potentially quite good, but it could help finally make her a bigger name, co-starring in a romantic comedy opposite Daniel Radcliffe.
Side note for screenwriting fans: she's the daughter of writers Nicholas Kazan (Reversal of Fortune and Matilda) and Robin Swicord (Little Women, Memoirs of a Geisha and Matilda). Bonus note: and granddaughter of Elia Kazan.
Here's the trailer.
Robert J. Elisberg is a political commentator, screenwriter, novelist, tech writer and also some other things that I just tend to keep forgetting.
