March 22: A Late Quartet
Four classical musicians have been part of a successful quartet for many years, growing their careers and families together. When one member of the quartet says he wants to leave, what will happen to all the others? A sensitive but fearless examination of re-invention in later life.
March 29: A Single Man
Out of the blue, a gay man learns from a brief phone call that his partner was killed in a car crash. When the person you
have built your life around dies, it can be hard to imagine life continuing without them. When you’ve never been “open”
about how much you love them, it can be even harder.
April 5: Philomena
Like many millions of young single women in the 1950s-60s in the Western world, Philomena was forced to give up her baby for adoption, and was brutally shamed by her church. How do we learn to recover from such loss in early life, and forgive people who have hurt us so deeply, so we can live more happily in our later years?
