Written by Gretchen Dyer and directed by Julia Dyer (who previously teamed on "Late Bloomers"), the story, set in the 1970s, follows a couple whose hurts and betrayals are brought to the fore during a boozy party, all while their children steal away to the attic, where they conjure up stories of their own. It's the kind of small drama that doesn't get made in the studio system anymore, a fact cited by the actors in this exclusive, seven-minute behind-the-scenes featurette as the reason, in addition to the strength of the material, they signed on to the project.
It's a generous look, as both Hawkes and Parker share their thoughts on making the movie, alongside clips and sequences from the film. "The Playroom" opens in New York and Los Angeles on Friday, February 8th and will roll out across the country over the next few weeks. Check out the featurette below.
