I’ll See You in My Dreams
NAME OF FILM: I’LL SEE YOU IN MY DREAMS
DIRECTOR(S): Brett Haley
STARRING: Blythe Danner, Martin Starr, Sam Elliott, Malin Åkerman, June Squibb, Rhea Perlman, and Mary Kay Place.
GENRE: Comedy Film
SYNOPSIS: No one wants to think about losing someone they love. But what happens when you lose someone, spend years alone, and then suddenly find romantic feelings stirring again? Blythe Danner is spot-on perfect as Carol, whose life is thrown off-kilter by not one but two men, who are at least two generations apart, to boot. Martin Starr gets a chance to stretch beyond his nerdcore reputation, and plays Lloyd (Suitor #1) with a very sweet, matter-of-fact winningness. Sam Elliott as Bill, on the other hand (Suitor #2), is self-assured, charming, and just a little bit mischievous. Master character actors Rhea Perlman, June Squibb, and Mary Kay Place are a complete hoot as Carol’s bridge partners. It’s a funny, moving, big-hearted take on love in your seventies by Florida filmmaker Brett Haley, last seen in the area winning the Audience Award at the 2010 Sarasota Film Festival for his debut feature, The New Year. In addition, producer Laura Smith’s film That Evening Sun was the Audience Award winner in 2009. The Festival is proud to welcome back our award-winning alumni!
