Film nominated for Academy Award for Best Documentary shows at the Fisher Theatre
Sedona AZ (April 12, 2021) – The Mary D. Fisher Theatre is proud to present the Academy Award-nominated “The Mole Agent” showing April 17-21 at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
“The Mole Agent” is nominated for the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature at this year’s Oscars.
Sergio is a Chilean spy. Sort of. At least, he is offered the role of one after a casting session organized by Detective Romulo, a private investigator who needs a credible mole to infiltrate a retirement home. Romulo’s client, the concerned daughter of a resident, suspects her mother is being abused and hires him to find out what is really happening.
However, Sergio is 83, not 007, and not an easy trainee when it comes to technology and spying techniques. But he is a keen student, looking for ways to distract himself after recently losing his wife. What could be a better distraction than some undercover spy action? While gathering intelligence, Sergio grows close to several residents and realizes that the menacing truth beneath the surface is not what anyone had suspected.
“The Mole Agent” is a stylish combination of an observational documentary and a spy movie, with sleek camerawork and wonderfully watchable characters. It’s a unique meditation on compassion and loneliness that will infiltrate your heart and never let go.
“The Mole Agent” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre April 17-21. Showtimes will be 1 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, April 17 and 18; 7 p.m. on Tuesday, April 20; and 4 p.m. on Wednesday, April 21.
