More Info IMDb

Soulful and musical British exchange student Sophie Williams ( Felicity Jones) comes to New York in search of inspiration.

On the surface, Sophie’s host family seems happy enough, but with her arrival to the Reynolds’ Upstate New York home, the private struggles of each family member begin to bubble. In particular, frustrated musician-turned-piano- teacher Keith Reynolds (Guy Pearce) finds long suppressed dreams and desires reignited by Sophie’s talent and inquisitive nature. While Keith’s wife, Megan (Amy Ryan) and daughter, Lauren (breakout talent, Mackenzie Davis) focus on Lauren’s final year of high school, Sophie and Keith are drawn ever closer by their mutual longing for creative expression. Ultimately, Sophie and Keith must confront how much they are willing to sacrifice and what they truly want out of life. 

Part of the New York Critics Series, this screening will feature a simulcast Q&A with stars Felicity Jones, Guy Pierce, Amy Ryan and director Drake Doremus.
