PELHAM, NY -- On Thursday, April 2nd at 7:30 p.m. The Picture House will present a special advance screening of the film 5 to 7 (R; 95 mins.) ahead of its nationwide debut on April 23rd. After the screening, TPH Critic-in-Residence Marshall Fine will host a post-film discussion and Q&A with the film’s director Victor Levin.
Outside the Manhattan St. Regis Hotel, aspiring young writer Brian (Anton Yelchin) first meets Arielle (Bérénice Marlohe), the sophisticated wife of a French Diplomat. Though she’s older, married, and the mother of two, Brian can’t help but be drawn to her and the two begin a cinq-a-sept affair. It’s a clash with his traditional values and his parents (Frank Langella and Glenn Close) can barely handle the news, but Brian couldn’t be more smitten. As the two fall deeper in love, Brian begins to wish for more than just the hours of five to seven and soon the two must face the most significant decision of their lives. 5 to 7 is an emotionally powerful debut from writer and director Victor Levin, who shows how hard you will fight for love when the odds are stacked against you.
Victor Levin was born in New York City and raised there and in Rockland County, New York. He wrote Dramatic Publishing Company's Death in Scarsdale while a student at Amherst College. Since then, he has gone on to a prolific career writing for film and television.
