Here is the trailer from Applied Art Productions’ upcoming film FINDING JOY. The film is directed by Carlo De Rosa, starring Josh Cooke, Liane Balaban, Barry Bostwick, Lainie Kazan.

FINDING JOY will open in theaters JUNE 7th, 2013

Pompous and self-absorbed Kyle Livingston (Josh Cooke) is unhappily stuck in his life, longing to relive the success of his first novel. His not-so-desirable life rapidly unravels forcing him to return home to his wildly eccentric family with his tail between his legs, only to discover his estranged father, Alan (Barry Bostwick), a handsome agoraphobic curmudgeon, has converted his old bedroom into a tacky bathroom, fueling Kyle’s rage against his family.

Life at home begins to show signs of improvement when Kyle meets the spunky and vivacious Joy Bailey (Liane Balaban), a delightfully offbeat bohemian beauty who recruits Kyle to help her make the world a better place, making him feel alive for the first time in ages and inspiring his writing. But it’s short-lived. Joy’s been told she’s going to die soon and wants Kyle to write her obituary.

As Kyle spends more and more time getting to know Joy, he accidentally falls in love and grows increasingly skeptical of her claim she’s dying. With the help of his wacky family, Kyle hopes to convince Joy she has many good years left and should spend them with him. But does fate have other plans?

Friday, June 17th, 2011

Principal photography will begin next week in South Florida on the independent feature Finding Joy, starring Josh Cooke, Liane Balaban, Barry Bostwick and Lainie Kazan. Carlo De Rosa is making his feature film directorial debut with Finding Joy, a comedy written by Shona Tuckman. The film is being produced by Richard DiPatri. The executive producer is Brad Tuckman.

Finding Joy is the delightfully offbeat story of a self-absorbed writer who is forced to move back home with his family when his luck and money run out. Longing to relive his glory days, he learns about happiness when he meets Joy, a spirited young woman who asks him to write her obituary.

Cooke is fresh off the ABC series Better with You and before that, Notes from the Underbelly. Balaban counts among her recent credits NCIS: Los Angeles, Covert Affairs and Last Chance Harvey. The always-busy Bostwick can currently be seen in Cougar Town while Kazan had two recurring roles last season alone on both Desperate Housewives and ‘Til Death.
