Sedona News – The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present “Moving On” showing April 21-27 at the Mary D. Fisher and Alice Gill-Sheldon Theatres.
“Moving On” was the closing night film at the recent Sedona International Film Festival and is returning to the theatres by popular demand.
Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin star as estranged friends who reunite to seek revenge on the petulant widower (Malcolm McDowell) of their recently deceased best friend. Along the way, Fonda’s character reunites with her great love (Richard Roundtree) as each woman learns to make peace with the past and each other.
In “Moving On”, writer and director Paul Weitz enlists legendary Hollywood actresses Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin to star as Claire and Evelyn, respectively: two estranged friends who reunite to seek revenge on the widower of their friend who recently passed away. Tomlin has worked with Weitz previously on “Admission” and “Grandma” (the latter of which had been written for her) and has found that the filmmaker is “very open and supportive.” This time around, Tomlin called up Weitz and asked him to write a movie for her to star in alongside Fonda, and the rest is history.
“Moving On” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher and Alice Gill-Sheldon Theatres April 21-27. Showtimes will be Friday and Monday, April 21 and 24 at 4:00 p.m.; Saturday, April 22 at 3:00 p.m.; Tuesday, April 25 at 6:30 p.m.; and Wednesday and Thursday, April 26 and 27 at 7:00 p.m.
