Patrick Stewart stars in new independent film debuting at Mary D. Fisher Theatre
Sedona AZ (April 13, 2015) – The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present its Premiere Series with the one-night-only debut of “Match”, starring Patrick Stewart. The film will show Thursday, April 23 at 4 and 7 p.m. at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
Patrick Stewart gives a captivating performance in this witty, emotionally gripping adaptation of director Stephen Belber’s own Tony Award-nominated play. Stewart stars as Tobi, an eccentric, Manhattan ballet instructor whose quiet life is interrupted by the arrival of a young couple (Carla Gugino and Matthew Lillard) from Seattle, presumably there to interview him about his colorful life as a dancer in the 1960s.
As Tobi spins salacious tales from his former career, an ulterior motive for the couple’s visit emerges, forcing the trio to confront a secret that may connect them all. Driven by Stewart’s tour-de-force performance, “Match” moves masterfully between razor-sharp comic banter and heartrending poignancy.
Critics are raving about “Match”. The Huffington Post calls it “Dynamite! Patrick Stewart gives one of his greatest performances!” Renowned critic Pete Hammond says “Stewart is given the role of a lifetime. A simply unforgettable performance! A must see!”
“Match” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre one day only: Thursday, April 23 at 4 and 7 p.m. Tickets are $12, or $9 for Film Festival members. For tickets and more information, please call 928-282-1177. Both the theatre and film festival office are located at 2030 W. Hwy. 89A, in West Sedona.
