Award-winning film starring Ben Platt, Lola Kirke and Yvette Nicole Brown returns to Sedona
The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Northern Arizona theatrical encore of “Broken Diamonds” showing Thursday, Aug. 26 at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.
“Broken Diamonds” played to audience acclaim and was one of the highest rated films at the recent Sedona Film Festival and is returning for a one-night-only theatrical encore by popular demand.
The film stars Tony Award-winner Ben Platt, Lola Kirke and Yvette Nicole Brown.
Once twenty-something Scott Weaver (Platt) receives the call from his step-mother (Brown) that his father has passed away in his sleep, he is acutely unaware of how this will affect his dream of moving to Paris to complete his first novel.
Just days away from packing up and boarding the trans-Atlantic flight, Scott must pick up his schizophrenic sister, Cindy (Kirke) for the last viewing of their father’s body before his cremation. However, this is just the beginning of Scott’s new responsibility of being a legal guardian, as he is Cindy’s sole capable living family member.
The following days are filled with Scott dealing with Cindy’s mental illness unlike he has ever experienced before – her removal from her Halfway House residence due to her behavioral issues, taking her in as a roommate, and finding her a new and appropriate home. Along the way he is realizing her social inappropriateness and unpredictability are beyond his scope of care and understanding.
How will Scott manage being responsible for Cindy’s well-being while realizing his dream of moving to Paris?
“Broken Diamonds” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre on Thursday, Aug. 26 at 4 and 7 p.m. Tickets are $12, or $9 for Film Festival members.
