Los Angeles, CA (April 4, 2012)–Academy Award-nominated actors Annette Bening and Ed Harris, and Academy Award-winner Robin Williams will be joined by Amy Brenneman and Jess Weixler in Arie Posin’s romantic drama LOOK OF LOVE. Posin is directing the project that he co-wrote with scribe Matthew McDuffie. Mockingbird Pictures’ Julie Lynn and Bonnie Curtis are producers.

The majority of financing for the project was found in Dallas, Texas, where Curtis and Lynn previously sourced funds for the critically acclaimed ALBERT NOBBS, which earned three Academy Award nominations this past season including Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role for Glenn Close.
