On the heels of their indie hit “Life After You,” which was released to national audiences in April through Freestyle Digital Media, Sarah T. Schwab and Brian Long, principals of Cardinal Flix (CFI), the New York-based company that specializes in independent films are pleased to announce that A Stage of Twilight, starring Karen Allen (Raiders of the Lost Ark, Starman) and William Sadler (The Shawshank Redemption, Die Hard 2), is an official selection of the Big Apple Film Festival. The film will screen on Friday, November 18 at 8:15 PM at Quad Cinema, 34 West 13th Street, New York, NY 10011. Click here for tickets.
“Cora,” (Allen) and “Barry,” (Sadler) are a retired couple enjoying life in their 70s when Barry receives fatal news about his health, prompting a challenging decision for them both. His hope for a dignified death proves to be a dispiriting struggle for Cora, especially when “Joey,” (Marlon Quijije), a 17- year-old neighbor who acts as a surrogate son to the childless couple, enters the picture.
Rounding out the cast are Alfredo Narciso (Demolition), Alexander Flores (The Maze Runner), Yetta Gottesman (Rabbit Hole) and Emily Kratter (Life After You).
