CHICKEN WITH PLUMS

101 min | PG13
From the acclaimed writer and director of PERSEPOLIS, CHICKEN WITH PLUMS is a whimsical drama adapted from Marjane Satrapi’s uniquely captivating graphic novel about her great–uncle, a celebrated Iranian musician who gave up his life for music and love. Mathieu Amalric (QUANTUM OF SOLACE) stars as the violinist, unable to conceive of life without the consolation of music and confined to bed to await death. Mixing animation with surreal live–action fantasy sequences, beautifully stylized scenes from his past, present, and future reveal the heartrending love story that inspired his musical genius.
