Every Day (2010) Helen Hunt and Liev Schreiber


Here’s an early glimpse at the independent film Every Day, starring Liev Schreiber as Ned, a television writer with a gay son, whose relationship with his wife (Helen Hunt) is strained when her estranged father moves into their New York home. Director Richard Levine based much of the film’s drama on his own life. “It’s a very personal movie,” he tells EW. “I wouldn’t say it’s completely autobiographical, but it’s definitely personal in the sense that it has to do with my son who came out when he was 14 and dealing with my father-in-law.” Even the series that Ned writes for bears more than a passing resemblance to Nip/Tuck, which Levine worked on for years. “But even while it’s personal like that, it also definitely feels like it resonates with a lot of other people. It grapples with the very human issues of parents and children.” Every Day will be premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 24.
