‘Juliet, Naked’: Rose Byrne on Turning Nick Hornby’s Book About Two Men Into the Story of One Smart Woman

‘Juliet, Naked’: Rose Byrne on Turning Nick Hornby’s Book About Two Men Into the Story of One Smart Woman
There’s no one actually named Juliet in Jesse Peretz’s “Juliet, Naked,” but the new Nick Hornby adaptation does hinge on the disarming performance of its leading lady: Rose Byrne as Annie, a woman trapped between two very different men. First, there’s her long-time boyfriend Duncan (Chris O’Dowd), a normal enough guy defined by his one unique trait, a decades-long obsession with indie rocker Tucker Crowe (Ethan Hawke).

Based on the 2009 Hornby novel of the same name, “Juliet, Naked” presents a familiar figure in Duncan, calling to mind the similar Hornby protagonists of “About A Boy” and “High Fidelity”: an infantile aesthete who seems to think that being creepily knowledgeable about another person’s art is a suitable stand-in for having his own life. When the film opens, Annie is struggling with her own kind of mid-life crisis. She’s lived in the same small town for too long,

"Do you think there's any way back for me?" Roadside Attractions has released the first trailer for an indie comedy titled Juliet, Naked, adapted from Nick Hornby's novel of the same name.

Rose Byrne stars in this film as a woman in a relationship with a chummy guy, played by Chris O'Dowd, who is obsessed with one particular band.
