The Late Show:

Exclusive Area Premiere March 21–24!

(2013) dir Eugenio Mira w/Elijah Wood, John Cusack, Kerry Bishé, Alex Winter, Tamsin Egerton, Allen Leech [90 min; DCP]
It’s been years since Tom Selznick (Wood), the most talented pianist of his generation, walked away from the stage after one night’s catastrophic performance. Convinced by his movie star girlfriend to return to performing for a benefit concert, Tom finds himself in a packed theater, in front of the expectant audience, with a menacing message written on his score: “Play one wrong note and you die”. With frightening evidence that this is no joke and without leaving the piano, Tom must discover the source of the threat and look for help without anyone realizing. Director Eugenio Mira and cinematographer Unax Mendia have created a swirling, musical and thrilling tour de force of real time filmmaking.

“Breathtaking, dazzling, splendid. An utter joy of high concept, artfully composed and absolutely thrilling pure cinema.” – Sam Zimmerman, Fangoria

“A pulse-pounding experiment in terror.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

“Probably the best Brian De Palma movie he never made.” – Todd Gilchrist, The Playlist
