Year by the Sea

Please Note: This film is no longer showing at Railroad Square Cinema

Based on the New York Times Bestseller by Joan Anderson, YEAR BY THE SEA is “life affirming, breathtaking and inspirational” (Avi Offer, NYC MovieGuru). Karen Allen (RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK) stars as the autobiographical Joan, who, after 30 years as a wife and mother, retreats to Cape Cod rather than follow her relocated husband to Kansas. Intent to rediscover herself but plagued with guilt, she questions her decision until stumbling upon a spirited mentor. Supported by her literary agent and a host of locals, including a sexy fisherman, our heroine learns to embrace the ebb and flow of life—ultimately discovering the balance between self and sacrifice, obligation and desire. “Refreshing in its depiction of diverse, older female characters”—New York Times. “In Allen’s spark and grace, there’s a real sense of discovery”—Hollywood Reporter. Unrated. 114 Min.
