The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Northern Arizona premiere of the critically-acclaimed new film “The Movie of My Life” showing for three exclusive screenings Dec. 9-13 at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
“The Movie of My Life” is based on the novel 'A Distant Father' by novelist and playwright Antonio Skármeta and stars Vincent Cassel, Selton Mello, Bruna Linzmeyer and Johnny Massaro.
“The Movie of My Life” is set in beautiful southern Brazil. Tony, the son of a Frenchman and a Brazilian woman, is a young man with a profound love of cinema and poetry. After graduating from college he returns to his small town in rural Brazil, to find out that his father had left.
Tony turns to the company of his father's friends in search of information and references of a lost male role model. He becomes a school teacher and a male figure to kids in an attempt to provide them with something he lacks himself.
A series of developments lead him to a surprising discovery of his father's whereabouts and reasons for leaving.
“The Movie of My Life” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre Dec. 9-13. Showtimes will be 7 p.m. on Saturday and Wednesday, Dec. 9 and 13; and 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 12.
