OVERVIEW

In THE HOUSE OF BLUE LEAVES, Ben Stiller is Artie Shaugnessy, a zookeeper and wannabe songwriter, who is trying to cope with a schizophrenic wife (Edie Falco), an impatient girlfriend (Jennifer Jason Leigh) and a visit from the Pope, all while sustaining his dream of hitting it big. THE HOUSE OF BLUE LEAVES is a satirical take on celebrity, religion and the frequent merging of the two.
