Chad Lowe and Hilary SwankIs it just me, or does it seem like every young director chooses some sort of "my family is all screwed up" script to kick off their career? Chad Lowe, best known for scoring it big by marrying Oscar-winning actress Hilary Swank, has added some decent talent to back up his directorial debut, Beautiful Ohio; now shooting in Brooklyn. Rita Wilson, Julianna Margulies and Michelle Trachtenberg are joining William Hurt in this coming-of-age family dramady set in the 70's.  Story centers on a teenager (newbie Brett Davern) who feels he lives in the shadow of his older brother. I wish I could delve into more detail folks, but it seems that's about it. In fact, IMDB's plot description simply states that "an entire family comes of age during the early 1970's." Other then that, Julianna Margulies plays one of them seductive next door neighbors (haven't seen that before) and Hurt and Wilson are cast as the parents; Mr. and Mrs. Excitement. The script is based on a short story found in Ethan Canin's anthology, The Palace Thief, and is produced by Hilary Swank (huge surprise!) and Mark Burton.
