Coming Soon

From Paolo Sorrentino, the internationally renowned writer/director of Italy’s Oscar-winning foreign language film The Great Beauty, comes a poignant tale of how we each find our own passion in life. Michael Caine (Hannah and Her Sisters, Alfie, The Dark Knight) plays Fred, a famous English composer/conductor, and Harvey Keitel (Reservoir Dogs, The Piano) plays Mick, a veteran American director anxious to launch one more film. They are longtime best friends, vacationing in a luxury Swiss Alps spa. While Fred is retired and has no plans to resume his musical career despite a request from the Queen and the urging of his troubled daughter (Rachel Weisz, The Constant Gardener), Mick is trying to finish the screenplay for what may be his last important film, brainstorming with a quartet of brash young collaborators. He hopes that his muse, acting legend Brenda (Jane Fonda) will agree to star in it. And where will inspiration lead their younger friend Jimmy (Paul Dano, Love & Mercy), an actor grasping to make sense of his next performance? A breathtakingly beautiful film, full of humor, wisdom and acceptance.
