Opening Night Film
“Life is not always a comedy and it is not always a drama, it is a mix. And in my projects [like PEOPLE YOU MAY KNOW]. I like to play with that,” explained Canary Island, Spanish-bred director/screenwriter J. C. Falcon. And mix it up he does focusing on four main characters, all nearing 40 and dealing with various issues, frustrations, ambitions, disappointments and challenges in everything from their love relationships, whether gay or straight, single or married, to careers, parenthood, friendships, sexual identities and even kinkier fantasies. Like an extended and clearly dysfunctional American family, yes, they’re all in midlife crisis that Falcon makes both funny and sad, depending upon the character and their situation, even, in some cases, their dilemmas. The appealing and attractive cast includes Sean Maher as Joe, the always horny, sex junkie looking for the next app hookup; Andrea Grano as Delia, married but yearning for motherhood; Nacho San Jose as Rodrigo, professional, sterile and struggling to retain his manhood; and Mark Cirillo, workaholic, geeky, ready to give up looking for Mr. Right. Who finds love? Who finds sex? Who loses out? Among the gang of four, there’s enough betrayal, mistrust, misjudgments, mistakes, secrets, surprises to make you laugh one minute and cry the next, much like a good soap opera plot. In the end, all of their lives change, some for the better, others for the worse.
Fans of The Seminarian and The Last Straight Man will recognize Mark Cirillo who will be in attendance at opening night.
