Independent Film Shoots Scenes at CNR


The College of New Rochelle served as a movie set for two days this week, with filming for the indie comedy "Brother's Keeper" taking place at the Wellness Center and Sweeny Student Center.

The film stars Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale, Nick Kroll, and Jane Krakowski, all of whom were on campus for filming. Most of the shoot took place in the Wellness Center's NCAA-competition size pool, the setting for a children's swimming class.

Kroll plays a self-absorbed entrepreneur who suffers a breakdown on the night his new company launches. He leaves Manhattan to move in with his sister (Byrne) and her husband (Cannavale) and becomes the nanny for their 3-year-old son.

The film is directed by Ross Katz, an Oscar-nominated producer for "In the Bedroom" and "Lost in Translation."
