Reel Pieces moderator Annette Insdorf interviews Hugh Grant and director Marc Lawrence about their new comedy, The Rewrite. The two reunite after previous collaborations on Two Weeks Notice, Music and Lyrics, and Did You Hear About the Morgans? The Rewrite is a smart contemporary comedy about a once-successful Hollywood screenwriter who, in desperation, accepts a visiting professorship at an upstate college. Politically incorrect and clueless about how to teach, he gets into scrapes with colleagues played by seasoned players like Allison Janney and J.K. Simmons. More important, he learns a lot from an older student, beautifully played by Marisa Tomei, including romance. Recorded February 11, 2015 at 92nd Street Y.
