Unhook the Stars
First screening date unrecorded / Most recently screened in June 2014
Director: Nick Cassavetes. Cast: Gena Rowlands, Marisa Tomei, Jake Lloyd, David Thornton, Gérard Depardieu, Moira Kelly, David Sherrill, Bridgette Wilson. Screenplay: Nick Cassavetes and Helen Caldwell.

Twitter Capsule: Easy film to underestimate: unflashy, with some broad strokes. But Rowlands, Tomei excel. Story gradually deepens.

VOR:   Seems markedly minor at first. Turns into all-too-rare, earnest, warm engagement with older women's complex lives.
