Shopgirl - Jason Schwartzman at the Toronto Film Festival

Posted on: September 20, 2005 | Views: 24 | Comment

Jason Schwartzman discusses the adaptation of the novella, his character Jeremy, and the freedom he experienced filling in his role.

Based on Steve Martin's bestselling novella, Shopgirl, is a funny and poignant story of love in the modern age. The film catches a glimpse inside the lives of three very different people on diverse paths, but all in search of the same thing. Mirabelle (Claire Danes) is a "plain Jane", overseeing the rarely frequented glove counter at Saks Fifth Avenue in Beverly Hills. An artist struggling to keep up with even the minimum payment on her credit card and student loans, she keeps to herself until a rich, handsome fifty-something named Ray Porter sweeps her off her feet. Simultaneously, Mirabelle is being pursued by Jeremy, a basic bachelor who's not quite as cultured and successful as Ray. When fate steps in, the outcome may not always be a storybook ending, because in the end -- it was life.

Opens 10/21/05 (LA & NY)
