“Drinking Buddies” Premieres At SXSW

AUSTIN (March 10, 2013)--"Drinking Buddies," the comedy about blurring the line between work friendship and budding romance, premiered Saturday night at the South By Southwest film festival in Austin.

Writer and director Joe Swanberg, known for indie flicks with often minuscule budgets, brought his eighth film to the Austin gathering, but it's also easily the biggest production, with a cast featuring Olivia Wilde, Anna Kendrick, Jake Johnson and Ron Livingston.

Swanberg said he didn't feel extra pressure despite the more-lavish production.

While the plot was scripted, Swanberg had the actors improvise their dialogue so that the audience can "see real people coming through."
