PELHAM, N.Y. -- The Picture House will present a special advance screening of the film "5 to 7" at 7:30 p.m. Thursday ahead of its April 23 nationwide debut. After the screening, critic-in-residence Marshall Fine will host a discussion and question-and-answer session with the film’s director, Victor Levin.
Outside the Manhattan St. Regis Hotel, aspiring young writer Brian (Anton Yelchin) first meets Arielle (Bérénice Marlohe), the sophisticated wife of a French diplomat. Though she’s older, married and the mother of two, Brian can’t help but be drawn to her, and the two begin an affair. It’s a clash with his traditional values, and his parents (Frank Langella and Glenn Close) can barely handle the news, but Brian couldn’t be more smitten.
As the two fall deeper in love, Brian begins to wish for more than just the hours of 5 to 7, and soon the two must face the most significant decision of their lives.
Levin was born in New York and raised there and in Rockland County. He wrote Dramatic Publishing Company's "Death in Scarsdale" while a student at Amherst College. Since then, he has gone on to a prolific career writing for film and television. He is best-known for his work on the NBC television series "Mad About You" and for the feature film "Win a Date with Tad Hamilton!" He has shared a Golden Globe and three Emmy nominations. Levin resides in Los Angeles with his family.
"5 to 7" debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival and has since been featured at a number of festivals, including the Hamptons International Film Festival and the Palm Springs International Film Festival, among others.
