Maggie Smith and Kevin Kline create magic on the big screen

my-old-lady-onlineThe May selection at the North of 7 Film Fest tells the tale of a New Yorker, Kevin Kline, who wants to sell the Paris apartment he’s inherited. Obstacles abound as Kline realises the apartment’s occupants — a spirited Maggie Smith and her acid-tongued daughter, Kristin Scott Thomas — are going nowhere.
May’s feature, “My Old Lady,” is a warm and dramatic comedy from the great American playwright Israel Horovitz. Now in his mid-seventies and after 50 years of writing stage plays, Horovitz makes his feature-film debut as writer-director with “My Old Lady.”
In “My Old Lady” Kline easily steals hearts. His strengths shine through with his understanding of his character, his line delivery and even his ability to sing. Paired with Maggie Smith, their verbal sparring matches are an absolute delight. A mature work and the product of a master storyteller, “My Old Lady” promises to keep audiences entranced on May 12th.
Please join independent film lovers and enjoy “My Old Lady” on May 12 at 4:15 and 7pm at the Village Playhouse in Bancroft. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at the door or online at www.boxofficebancroft.com. And don’t forget to arrive at the Playhouse early to visit the bar and enjoy social time before the screening.
