The film was formerly known as “The Silent Treatment” but is currently untitled.
Kinnear and Ehle will play a married couple who inherit a Brooklyn home, while Garcia plays a single mother who runs the dress shop downstairs.
The film is anchored by young discoveries Theo Taplitz and Michael Barbieri, who play new best friends whose bond is tested by their parents’ battle over the dress shop lease. When they become pawns in that battle, they vow to stop talking to the adults as a form of protest.
Alfred Molina, David Krumholtz, Yolonda Ross, Andy Karl, Stella Schnabel and Talia Balsam will co-star in the film, which Sachs co-wrote with Mauricio Zacharias.
Sachs is producing the film with Lucas Joaquin, Christos Konstantakopoulos, Jim Landé and Laura Teodosio in association with Faliro House, Parts & Labor, Race Point Films, Raptor Films, RT Features and Water’s End Productions.
Following “Keep the Lights On” and “Love Is Strange,” this new movie will be the third in a trilogy of films by Sachs that focus on New York City, family life and real estate.
