The critically acclaimed An Audience of Chairs, based on the novel of the Same Name, gets US release
An extraordinary woman risks everything for a second chance to be a mother again in An Audience of Chairs, the critically acclaimed new film from director Deanne Foley, on digital September 24 from Indiecan Entertainment.
A film that “showcases the beauty of the province as much as the talents of its performers” (National Post), this universal story of the redemptive power of a mother’s love is adapted from the popular, award-winning novel, “An Audience of Chairs” by Joan Clark.
Maura Mackenzie (Carolina Bartczak) believes the world is hers to conquer. With her career as a concert pianist gaining momentum, it seems her beauty and talent will be strong enough to mask the demons that threaten to engulf her. But with an absent husband (Chris Jacot) and two young daughters at home, her precarious sanity begins to unravel until one summer day, burning with manic energy, she makes a terrible mistake —a mistake that will change her life forever. The consequences for Maura are catastrophic: her ambitious husband runs for his life, taking the children with him, leaving Maura to lapse into a full-scale breakdown. Life as she knew it is now over. With the help of her father, Ian (Peter MacNeill), Maura works to reclaim her life and waits for a miracle to bring her daughters home. But when the fates align, can the past be forgiven?
Written by Rosemary House and directed by Deanne Foley, An Audience of Chairs is “an experience to be shared” (TorontoNOW). See it September 24 on digital from Indiecan Entertainment.
