Finding a place to belong is never easy, and Liza Anonymous is no exception. Directed by 3-time Tribeca Director Aubrey Smyth, Liza Anonymous tells a powerful story about a young woman’s struggle to fit in who goes on a witty journey of finding herself through one support group after another. The Smyth-directed short stars Danielle Beckmann and was an Official Selection for the shorts program at the 2021 Tribeca Festival.
The cast and co-directors of the new highly anticipated film How It Ends, starring Zoe Lister-Jones as Liza and Cailee Spaeny as Young Liza, and is written, directed, and produced by Lister-Jones and Daryl Wein. It’s a pandemic comedy that’s not about COVID-19.
How It Ends stars Liza (Zoe Lister-Jones) as she runs all through Los Angeles, California trying to make it to her last party. The film is funny, witty, and keeps you on your toes.
The film features a huge star-studded cast of Olivia Wilde, Fred Armisen, Nick Kroll, Helen Hunt, Lamorne Morris, Finn Wolfhard, Glen Howerton, Bradley Whitford, Whitney Cummings, and more. In speaking on the huge cast, Zoe Lister-Jones described it as being a perfect storm and a positive thing to come out of the pandemic. The film for Lister-Jones and Daryl Wein was a true “labor of love.”
Zoe Lister-Jones not only stars in the film but also co-produced and co-directed with her husband, Daryl Wein.
The film originally premiered at Sundance, but had its New York premiere at the 2021 Tribeca Film Festival. We caught up with Zoe Lister-Jones, Daryl Wein, and Cailee Spaeny at the premiere of the film How It Ends at the 2021 Tribeca Festival. Watch the whole interview above!
