Welcome back to The Black List Table Reads with Franklin Leonard, this week we are overjoyed to bring you the The Other Side from screenwriter Stacey Maltin. Set at the nexus of the Hasidic and hipster communities of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, it’s a coming-of-age story about a boy who needs to decide how he wants to live his life. It’s about the clash between modernity and tradition, the high modern and the high holy. We have a remarkable cast to match this remarkable script including Cooper Thornton, Darren Criss, Jerry Adler, Eddie Kaye Thomas, Andrew Polk, Tammy Blanchard, Wallis Currie-Wood, Pico Alexander, Ron Tsur, Bill Raymond, and Neal Lerner.
