Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[on 'Our Idiot Brother'] I love humor when it's used effectively in something dramatic. And it was fun watching Paul [Rudd] handle the challenge of not using irony as a tool. The character doesn't go there. I mean, I can't really contextualize it, but what we were trying to do in the larger parameters of the film is to make you look at this guy - and to move you as well as make you laugh.

Trivia:

Brother of writer Evgenia Peretz, and brother-in-law of her husband, documentary-filmmaker David Schisgall. See more »
