For one night only on March 22
For a special one-night-only screening, The Beacon Theatre, in association with the Woodstock Film Festival and sponsored by Hudson Valley Programmers Group (HVPG), will present The Brass Teapot on Friday, March 22, at 8 p.m. The Beacon is one of the few screening points prior to the film going to national distribution.
John and Alice live in small-town America. Once voted “most likely to succeed,” Alice struggles to make ends meet, while her friends enjoy the good life. Her husband John, neurotic and riddled with phobias, just wants to get the bills paid. But an accident leads them to a roadside antique shop where Alice is spontaneously drawn to a mysterious brass teapot. It isn’t long before they realize it is no ordinary teapot and perhaps they have found the answer to their financial woes.
The Brass Teapot stars Juno Temple and Michael Angarano as Alice and John. The film also stars Alexis Bledel, Alia Shawkat and Bobby Moynihan. The film marks the feature directorial debut from Ramaa Mosley, who is an award-winning commercial and music-video director for such renowned clients as Adidas, ESPN and the B-52s. The film is based on a story by Mosley and Tim Macy, and is written by Macy.
