The Other Side
Private: Black List Table Reads #30 October 22, 2015
Welcome back to The Black List Table Reads with Franklin Leonard. Popular demand called for it, and we listened: Each earmovie is now a single episode. Today, we return to our second earmovie – The Other Side from screenwriter Stacey Maltin. Set at the nexus of the Hasidic and hipster communities of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, it’s a coming-of-age story about a boy who needs to decide how he wants to live his life. It’s about the clash between modernity and tradition, the high modern and the high holy. It stars Cooper Thornton, Darren Criss, Jerry Adler, Eddie Kaye Thomas, Andrew Polk, Tammy Blanchard, Wallis Currie-Wood, Pico Alexander, Ron Tsur, Bill Raymond, and Neal Lerner.
