The Sense of an Ending
Julian Barnes’ Man Booker Prize-winning novel “The Sense of An Ending” has been brought to the screen with its many complexities intact by acclaimed director Ritesh Batra (“The Lunchbox,” a hit at Mostly British festival). This subtle tale of how memory plays tricks on us and the consequences of decisions made when young stars Academy Award winner Jim Broadbent as a divorced retiree whose quiet existence is uprooted by a letter exposing long buried secrets. It forces him to face unwelcome truths about his first love (Charlotte Rampling). The splendid cast includes Michelle Dockery as his daughter and Emily Mortimer as the mother of his love interest from the past.
Director Ritesh Batra will be interviewed following the screening by film professor Larry Eilenberg
