Acclaimed new independent films make Sedona premiere at Mary D. Fisher Theatre
Sedona AZ (September 12, 2014) – The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Northern Arizona premieres of the acclaimed new award-winning independent films (featuring all-star casts) “Life of Crime” and “The One I Love” showing Sept. 19-23 at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
LIFE OF CRIME
Jennifer Aniston stars as a kidnapped wife, whose wealthy husband (Tim Robbins) doesn’t want to pay her ransom in the dark caper comedy “Life of Crime”, adapted from Elmore Leonard’s book The Switch.
When a pair of low-level criminals kidnap the wife of a corrupt real-estate developer, they get both more and less than they bargained for in “Life of Crime”.
Mickey Dawson (Jennifer Aniston), the wife of crooked real-estate developer Frank Dawson (Tim Robbins), is kidnapped by two common criminals (Yasiin Bey and John Hawkes), who intend to hold her for a $1 million ransom and extort her husband with inside information about his illegal business dealings. But Frank, who is holed up in the Bahamas with his mistress, decides he’d rather not get his wife back, setting off a sequence of double-crosses and plot twists that could only come from the mind of master storyteller Elmore Leonard.
“Life of Crime”is packed with the outrageously eccentric characters, black comedy and unexpected twists that earned Leonard a reputation as one of America’s sharpest and funniest crime writers. The all-star cast also features John Hawkes, Yasiin Bey, Mark Boone Junior, Isla Fisher and Will Forte.
“Life of Crime” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre Sept. 19-23. Showtimes will be 4 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 19-20; and 7 p.m. on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, Sept. 21-23.
THE ONE I LOVE
Ted Danson, Mark Duplass and Elisabeth Moss star in the dramatic comedy “The One I Love”. The highly anticipated debut feature from acclaimed author Charlie McDowell is an original tale that continues to showcase McDowell’s keen observations of human relationships with a distinct and comedic voice.
On the brink of separation, Ethan (Duplass) and Sophie (Moss) escape to a beautiful vacation house retreat for a weekend getaway in an attempt to save their marriage, at the recommendation of their therapist (Danson). The retreat is not only gorgeous, but also secluded — Ethan and Sophie are the only people staying there.
Soon after Sophie and Ethan arrive, however, they realize that there’s something strange about the retreat’s guest house. With the rules of the scenario seemingly established, Ethan and Sophie must go about navigating this strange situation they find themselves in. What begins as a romantic and fun retreat soon becomes surreal, when an unexpected discovery forces the two to examine themselves, their relationship, and their future.
“The One I Love” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre Sept. 19-23. Showtimes will be 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, Sept. 19-20; and 4 p.m. on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, Sept. 21-23.
