“Everybody Loves Raymond” creator Phil Rosenthal discusses writing, directing, and starring in the film “Exporting Raymond,” about his journey to a foreign land to help people who don’t seem to want his help. When Rosenthal joins forces with Hollywood studio Sony Pictures Television to recreate “Everybody Loves Raymond” for Russian TV audiences (as “The Voronins”), he finds himself lost in Moscow, lost in his mission, lost in translation. He tries to connect with his Russian colleagues but runs into characters and situations that conspire to drive him insane. It opens April 29 at the Angelika and Lincoln Plaza Cinemas.
