Sarah Jessica Parker seems to be on a new stride in her career, taking on the role of a woman who isn’t still parading around New York City looking for love, as she did for so long on “Sex and the City,” but is now grappling with her age and her life’s choices.
In “Here and Now,” Parker plays an established singer coming to terms with her priorities and her career’s direction after receiving some life-altering news. In this exclusive clip from the film, Parker sits with a disinterested young journalist who stingingly refers to as a “seasoned veteran.”
“Sure there are things I haven’t achieved,” Parker says after a long pause and a feeble stock answer. “I’m not done yet.”
“Here and Now,” directed by Fabien Constant and written by Laura Eason, follows Parker’s Vivienne on the eve of a major performance when she receives some life-altering news that causes her to reevaluate her priorities. As she crisscrosses the busy streets of New York City, she tries to balance her upcoming music tour, family and friends. Through time spent with her overbearing mother, Jeanne (Jacqueline Bisset), her long-time manager Ben (Common) and her ex-husband, Nick (Simon Baker), Vivienne strives to make peace with the decisions and sacrifices she’s made along the way.
Renée Zellweger also stars in the film alongside Taylor Kinney and Waleed Zuaiter.
“Here and Now,” formerly titled “Blue Night,” first premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival back in April. It will now be released in theaters, on demand and digital on Nov. 9.
