An excellent movie at the Esquire right now – don’t wait! A treat of a movie, an excellent story – the right ending.
Picture a professor at an Eastern liberal arts college, totally burned out. He has a not-often-used apartment in New York, shows up there unexpectedly one evening, to find that a young couple – him from Syria, her from Africa – are occupying it. Picture this same professor farther on playing the big African jembe drum in Central Park. Things have totally changed.
And then they change again, and the story unwinds in a different direction. Complex, beautiful, sometimes funny, tender, very human. A global story. You’ll love it.
