The Parting Glass


The People’s Premiere Gala offers the opportunity to see a great new film at a price accessible to everyone. The world premiere of The Parting Glass, starring Melissa Leo, Cynthia Nixon, Denis O’Hare, Anna Paquin, Rhys Ifans and Edward Asner, will screen at the elegant Festival Theatre, and will be introduced by Stephen Moyer and Anna Paquin.   The Parting Glass is a powerful, moving and beautifully structured drama about family, love and loss, and provides a perfect platform for a series of striking performances. Driven by a core team of True Blood alumni (director Stephen Moyer, star Anna Paquin, and writer and star Denis O’Hare), the film follows a family reeling from their younger sister’s death as they embark on a journey to collect the remnants of her life. The family delve into past memories to piece together a portrait of the woman they lost.   The film marks Stephen Moyer’s directorial debut, with the astute script providing a wonderful platform for a talented group of actors. O’Hare, Leo and Nixon star as the siblings who reminisce about their younger sister (Paquin) as they make their way to her apartment to sort through items that spark memories. In a long drive across a chilly landscape, the siblings are joined by the sister’s husband (Ifans) and their father (veteran actor Ed Asner). The film charts how a close-knit family deals with grief and loss – with laughter, tears and muddled memories. The Parting Glass is an impressive new drama that offers up an acting masterclass.
