Melissa Leo and Whoopi Goldberg lead all-star cast in film at Fisher Theatre
Sedona AZ (March 21, 2018) – The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Northern Arizona premiere of “Furlough”, showing March 30-April 4 at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
Academy Award-winner Melissa Leo, Whoopi Goldberg and Tessa Thompson lead a dynamite ensemble cast in this alternately rollicking and poignant comedy “Furlough” from director Laurie Collyer (the acclaimed “Sherrybaby”).
In between caring for her mother (Whoopi Goldberg), a young woman (Tessa Thompson) works part time at a prison. The rookie guard gets a chance to prove her mettle when she’s tasked with accompanying a hell-raising inmate (Melissa Leo) on an emergency furlough to visit her dying mother. But things soon spiral out of control, sending the pair on a hilarious, surprising, and ultimately touching road trip.
“Furlough” also features Oscar-winner Anna Paquin, Édgar Ramírez, and La La Anthony.
“Furlough” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre March 30-April 4. Showtimes will be 4 and 7 p.m. on Friday and Tuesday, March 30 and April 3; and 7 p.m. on Wednesday, April 4.
