Another superb film from director Thomas Mc Carthy who made the Station Agent which was so well received in our 2005/6 season.
A university professor is grieving over his wife’s death and is bored by his academic career. He returns to his New York apartment to find a young immigrant couple have occupied it. His first instinct is to throw them out, but he lets them stay and slowly builds a friendship built on a mutual liking for music. An understated and quietly passionate film.
