Virtual Cinema: Blackbird From Friday, September 18 - Thursday, October 8

Virtual Cinema: Blackbird Part of the Virtual Theater

We’re back to showing movies at the John and Nancy Hughes Theater, and still love connecting with you virtually!

ABOUT THE FILM:

An all-star cast anchors this crowd-pleasing drama from director Roger Michell (Notting Hill, Tea With the Dames), a remake of the acclaimed Danish film Silent Heart. Lily (Susan Sarandon) and Paul (Sam Neil) summon their loved ones to their beach house for one final gathering after Lily decides to end her long battle with ALS on her own terms. The couple is planning a loving weekend complete with holiday traditions, but the mood becomes strained when unresolved issues surface between Lily and her daughters Jennifer (Kate Winslet) and Anna (Mia Wasikowska). Joining the collective farewell are Lily’s son in law (Rainn Wilson), her lifelong friend (Lindsay Duncan), daughter’s partner (Bex Taylor-Klaus) and grandson (Anson Boon). Her story is ultimately one of hope, love and a celebration of life.

‘”May be the most beautifully complete film you will see all year.” – Telegraph
