10th Anniversary: A SERIOUS MAN

"I have never seen a film that mixes laugh-out-loud comedy so intimately with dead serious philosophical questioning. It packs so much into its short runtime. " - Dr strange

"This movie is one of my favorites - Michael Stuhlbarg the biggest reason, he's so heartbreakingly fantastically good in everything." -Rebecca

Melanie's Lynskey's Photo Album Pt 2

[Editor's Note: Today's guest blogger is the actress Melanie Lynskey. Her new film, the Sundance hit "Hello I Must Be Going" opens on September 7th. Don't miss it! -Nathaniel R]

PHOTO TIME. I'm sharing photos
(see part 1 for Venice with Peter Jackson and the upcoming feature Teddy Bears)

This photo above is of me saying "How in the hell did I get so lucky?" It is from the set of They Came Together, which is a romantic comedy that was written by David Wain and Michael Showalter and directed by Mr. Wain. Back row L-R: me, Amy Poehler, our first AD Lyda Blank, Paul Rudd, Erinn Hayes, Cobie Smulders, Kenan Thompson (on arm of sofa) Front row L-R: Michael Showalter, Ed Helms, Jason Mantzoukas, David Wain. Funny funny funny people!!

The next three pictures are from the set of Hello, I Must Be Going. It comes out September 7th -- so soon! I play a woman going through a divorce who is left pretty much shell-shocked. She meets a 19-year-old played by Christopher Abbott and embarks upon a pretty awesome love affair. In answer to a question in the comments, lying on a bed next to Christopher Abbott is a very pleasant experience because he is an intelligent, kind human being who I had a lot of wonderful conversations with. I'm sure that's the answer you were looking for!

Todd is giving Chris a very valuable piece of direction here. Chris is looking thoughtful.

Look at this sunset!

This man was one of our lovely grips. His name is Kevin Bacon.


This last picture is not from a set...

<--- I take Mouse with me to work a lot and this is just a cute picture of her in a hotel in Pittsburgh, where I stayed while shooting The Perks Of Being A Wallflower, which is out September 21st and is a truly lovely and special movie.

Love all these pictures. Can't wait to see Hello, I Must Be Going. Every time I've seen that trailer in a theater it has gone over very well.

Just lovely, once again!

Amy Poehler! That woman is so warm and funny, yet she has those really cold, scary eyes! What a combination!

And, of course it was the answer I was looking for. Totally honest. 100% ;)

I love that the grip's name is KEVIN BACON. How mercilessly must he be teased on set?

I just need to say that I have been waiting for a film of Perks of Being a Wallflower since the book came out. I was in high school and it instantly became one of my favorite books. So hearing you say that the film is "lovely and special," which is exactly how I would describe the book, makes me feel really happy (although reconciling you, an actress who gives me warm fuzzies, with your character is causing me much grief. BUT! I do believe in your talents to pull it off)

I also cannot wait to see Hello I Must Be Going. I always love to see actors who have proven themselves to be incredibly effective at creating full characters in small roles (an extremely difficult thing to do) get to unleash their full talents on a leading character. And congratulations on the wonderful notices you and the film have been receiving! May they only continue!

Denny- yes. My character was a challenge, for sure. But I am so happy to be a part of that movie.
Will- so sweet to say!
James- 100%.
Nathaniel- I know...!! It's an unusual name, too. I don't know the other Kevin Bacon but this one was a sweetheart.
