Gold Coast Film Fest Presents “Time out of Mind” at Soundview Cinemas Port Washington, September 16th
August 24, 2015
LONG ISLAND, NY – The Gold Coast International Film Festival has announced another addition to their year-round film program. On Wednesday, September 16th, 7:30PM “Time Out of Mind”–Starring Richard Gere and Broadway Legend Ben Vereen–will be featured at Soundview Cinemas, Soundview Marketplace, 7 Soundview Market Pl, Port Washington, NY 11050.
Directed by the Academy Award nominated Oren Moverman (The Messenger, Rampart), “Time Out of Mind” (121 Min, PG-13) is a haunting look at life on the streets immersing viewers in one man’s daily quest to survive. Gere delivers a soul-baring performance as George, a man whose struggle to find food and a place to sleep in New York City is beautifully captured with remarkable realism and heartrending compassion. Shuffled into the unforgiving bureaucracy of a men’s shelter, George seems destined to wind up as just another lost soul swallowed up by the system—until he meets a gregarious, down-and-out ex-jazzman (Vereen) who inspires George to reconnect with his estranged daughter (Jena Malone- Donnie Darko, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire). Cinematically stunning and shot in an eloquently observational style, Time Out of Mind is an unforgettable plunge into a world that is all too easily overlooked
