Filmed in the East Village, ‘The Trouble With Bliss’ Comes Back for Its Premiere

The folks behind “The Trouble With Bliss” – the movie adaptation of Douglas Light’s “East Fifth Bliss,” about a 35-year-old who still lives with his father in an East Village apartment – have posted a new video featuring clips from the movie and an interview with Michael C. Hall, who stars in the film along with Lucy Liu. Plus: If you download a flyer and get it validated by local businesses like Good Records (featured in the movie), you can enter a contest at select screenings. (Who says East Village film productions don’t give back to local businesses?)

As documented on its production blog, the film, premiering March 23 at Village East, was shot in front of St. Mark’s Church in-the-Bowery, STA Travel, Tompkins Square Park, Velvet Cigar Lounge (click here for a 2-for-1 cigar deal!), and various other locations in April and May of 2010. You can see the trailer here.
