Writer/director Howard Goldberg recently spoke with “Breakthrough Entertainment” and Phoenix Movie Examiner about his new dramedy “Jake Squared.”

In “Jake Squared” - which screens 1:10 p.m. Friday, April 4, 4:55 p.m. Saturday, April 5 and 9:55 a.m. Sunday, April 6 at Harkins Scottsdale 101 as part of the 14th Annual Phoenix Film Festival - Elias Koteas plays a filmmaker whose problems compound exponentially when younger versions of himself invade his life and try to solve his romantic problems.

Listen to “Breakthrough Entertainment” and Phoenix Movie Examiner's full interview with Goldberg by clicking on the image above this article. The following is an excerpt from the interview in which the writer/director discusses what he hopes audiences will take away from watching “Jake Squared.”

One of the things that I love about this film is that any time I have ever had screenings, I have had people come up to me afterward - people in their 60’s and 70’s, people in their 40’s, people in their 30’s and even young guys and women in their 20’s come over to me - and say, ‘Oh my God! I am Jake! I get it! I totally get it!’ So, in a way, I love that universal aspect of the frustration of the search for perfect love. Everybody is doing it. People in their 20’s and even people in their 70’s are all looking for that perfect love - unless, of course, they have found it.” - Howard Goldberg
