"'You Can't Have It All' sort of takes this light-hearted look at people's misperceptions -- of others and themselves"
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 20, 2010
Jon Lindstrom, best known for his work in daytime television, (currently starring as Craig Montgomery on "As the World Turns," for which he received a 2010 Emmy Lead Actor nomination), will return to the big screen in the upcoming feature film, "You Can't Have It All".
The film, a romantic comedy about self-discovery that draws a distinction between contentment and happiness, stars Lindstrom, Wendie Malick ("Just Shoot Me!", "Pushing Daisies"), and Chris Murrah in his feature film debut.
Multi-millionaire/socialite Paul Grecco (Lindstrom) seems to have it all. Or does he? After selling his lucrative business, he's faced with retirement, and more money and time on his hands than he knows what to do with. The sudden changes in his life cause his overbearing (but well-meaning) sister Elise (Malick) to decide that giving Paul a dog would be the perfect solution. With little else to do, Paul assumes the daily dog-walking routine in the park, where he encounters Andy Chance (Murrah), a gay advertising whiz, who happens to walk his dog on the very same schedule. What starts as a casual daily meeting in the park, eventually develops into something more. Soon Paul is questioning his life choices and must decide between the contentment he thought he had and the happiness he comes to realize has eluded him.
"'You Can't Have It All' sort of takes this lighthearted look at people's misperceptions -- of others and themselves", said Lindstrom, "It was great to work with Jay, the crew and the rest of the cast. I am really proud of the work, and to be a part of the film."
The film, directed by Jay Arnold, written by Arnold & Thom Cardwell, and produced by Fred Caruso, is in post-production. It is expected to premiere sometime this summer in the film's setting of Philadelphia - and just in time for the festival circuit!
