The Sense of an Ending

Tony Webster (Jim Broadbent, The Lady in the Van, The Iron Lady) leads a reclusive life as a small business owner. His quiet existence is interrupted by the receipt of a letter from a late classmate. The letter forces Tony to face difficult truths about his past, including a tumultuous relationship with first love, Veronica (Charlotte Rampling, 45 years), and the devastating consequences of a decision made a lifetime ago. Ritesh Batra’s (The Lunchbox) newest film, “offers a poignant commentary on how each of us attempts to make meaning of our lives, distorting memories […] to suit agendas we can’t entirely rationalize.” (Variety)

Tickets: $8 (members), $13 (nonmembers)

Ritesh Batra is a BAFTA-nominated writer and filmmaker. His debut feature, The Lunchbox, premiered at the Cannes Film Festival where it received critical acclaim. It went on to win the Toronto Film Critics Association Award for Best First Feature Film in 2014.

More than anything, The Sense of an Ending reinforces Batra as a keen observer of small moments.
