Bryn Mawr Native Alex Ross Perry Directs Elizabeth Moss’ Nervous Breakdown, And Winnie The Pooh, Too!

If you are unfamiliar with the Bryn Mawr-born-and-raised director Alex Ross Perry, don’t be too, too hard on yourself. Prior to now, he was best known for the mumblecore black comedy The Color Wheel, and Listen Up, Philip, a literary comedy starring Jason Schwartzman. But that’s set to change: Ross Perry’s film fest favorite Queen of Earth, a dark suspense number with Elizabeth Moss (who also co-starred in Listen Up, Philip) and Katherine Waterston (from Inherent Vice), has just been uploaded to Netflix. (You read that right: A movie that you may want to see has been uploaded to Netflix!) Meanwhile, Perry has (oddly) been brought on to pen a screenplay for Disney’s upcoming live-action Winnie The Pooh project, and Perry has also optioned the rights for Don DeLillo’s The Names. If all of this shakes out like it probably will, Perry could make more, better movies in 24 months than fellow Main Liner M. Night Shyamalan has made in 24 years. Awkward.
