The Movie, Not the City
From what I could gather, the movie called “Pittsburgh ” takes place in Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh native Jeff Goldblum stars as himself in a semi-fictional documentary about his semi-fictional attempt to stage a version of Music Man, which he actually did.
I can’t figure out how much of it is real and how much of it is staged, and that’s kind of the point. I guess. Goldblum and the rest of the filmmakers are a bit cagey about it.
You can see the movie yourself if you have Starz – the next showing is at 3:10AM on August 30th, if that tells you anything. You’ll also be able to buy the DVD in September.
Anyway, you can watch the trailer (and its wonderful shots of our fair city) here:
