The Sedona International Film Festival presents a one-night-only return of “Year By The Sea” — based on the New York Times bestseller — on Thursday, Oct. 12 at 4 and 7 p.m. at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre.

“Year By The Sea” returns by popular demand after a sold-out screening in September as part of the New York Film Critics Series. This special encore will be hosted by Peter Travers from Rolling Stone magazine via satellite, and will feature a Q-and-A with Karen Allen and other cast members and the filmmakers.

It’s never too late to reclaim your life.

After 30 years as a wife and mother, an empty nester retreats to Cape Cod rather than follow her relocated husband to Kansas. Intent to rediscover herself but plagued with guilt, she questions her decision until stumbling upon a spirited mentor. Supported by her literary agent and a host of locals, including a sexy fisherman, the heroine learns to embrace the ebb and flow of life — ultimately discovering the balance between self and sacrifice, obligation and desire.

“Year By The Sea” stars Karen Allen, S. Epatha Merkerson, Celia Imrie, Yannick Bisson and Michael Cristofer.

“A triumph! Life-affirming, breathtaking and inspirational!” — Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru
