Hannah Takes The Stairs in Theaters Tomorrow!

Joe Swanberg's film Hannah Takes The Stairs, which premiered at SXSW earlier this year to rave reviews, makes it to theaters tomorrow! Yeah, it'll be a limited release, but if you live anywhere near where it's playing (find out HERE), you'll want to check it out. I bought a DVD of an earlier film of Swanberg's (2005's Kissing On The Mouth) on a whim after seeing it being compared to earlier so-called "mumblecore" films I had enjoyed, Andrew Bujalski's Mutual Appreciation and Funny Ha Ha. It looks promising, as Hannah is pretty much a who's who of mumblecore filmmakers, including acting turns by Bujalski, Mark Duplass (co-director of The Puffy Chair), Ry Russo-Young (Orphans) and Todd Rohal (The Guatemalan Handshake). Greta Garwig plays the film's titular character, a recent college graduate interning at a Chicago production company, trying to sort our her feelings for her two co-workers, which may result in the disruption of their friendship. Apparently, according to IMDB, it also features a few songs from Swanberg's band, the Ice Cream Floats, which I posted about earlier.
