The Hope College Knickerbocker Theatre will conclude its fall film series with the heartwarming romance, “A Love Song” on Wednesday-Saturday, Nov. 16-19, at 7:30 p.m.
The Washington Post has described “A Love Song” as “a movie of extraordinary stillness in a noisy world.”
At a campground in the rural West, Faye waits alone for an old flame, Lito, from her past to arrive. She is uncertain of his intentions while bashful about her own, and the two meet in the middle of their nomadic journeys across the West. Starring Academy Award-winner Dale Dickey as Faye, and Wes Studi as Lito, “A Love Song” marks the lyrical feature debut of writer-director Max Walker-Silverman. The film is rated PG.
The New York Times has said that “more than one kind of love is being celebrated in that title, including the director’s affection for his home state, its wide-open spaces and wandering souls.”
“Dickey and Studi, both veteran actors with credits longer than many careers, are extraordinary to the point that it’s hard to articulate why and just how good they are. They are utter masters of their craft,” reviewed The Washington Post.
Tickets for the individual films are $7 for regular admission; $6 for senior citizens, Hope College faculty and staff, and children; and free for Hope College students. Tickets will be sold at the door.
