Write When You Get Work: New Romantic Comedy from Stacy (My New Gun) Cochran

Abramorama has acquired the theatrical rights to Write When You Get Work and will release the film on November 23 in N.Y.

The romantic comedy starring Emmy-nominee Finn Wittrock (“The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story,” La La Land), Rachel Keller (“Fargo,”) and Emily Mortimer (“Mary Poppins Returns”), follows former lovers Jonny Collins (Wittorck) and Ruth Duffy (Keller), whose paths have crossed again years later.

The film is written and directed by Stacy Cochran, whose feature debut My New Gun earned her an Independent Spirit Award nomination for Best First Feature.

Write When You Get Work is an intimate portrait of love amongst the backdrop of the often unruly New York City.

Write When You Get Work is a romantic comedy set in New York City, at a private school for girls, and in the world outside its exclusive walls. It’s a story of money, access, and mischief, of who gets in through doorways and how.

Ruth Duffy is a woman working to put her tumultuous days behind her and establish a career on the lower rungs of the Upper East Side. Jonny Collins is the man she least wants to see, but whose efforts to infiltrate her life seem unimpeded by locks or windows.

Nan Noble (Mortimer) is a member of the entitled class whose pronouncements reveal the fears and cluelessness of life on the inside. This is a love story that evolves into a heist.

The film is a comedy, a love story, and a portrait of New York, a city where people live and walk in unexpected combinations, in their own heads but also together.

Shooting this kind of scripted but loose-limbed story on film was especially thrilling since the camera and lighting was done by the extraordinary cinematographer Robert Elswit.

After the run in NY, Write When You Get Work will roll out in multi-city cross country tour.
