The Toronto Jewish Film Foundation presents their December Chai Tea series with a terrific Canadian film that’s sure to become a classic. Directed by Leon Marr, The Second Time Around is a feel-good movie to end the year on. The film will screen Sunday December 18, at Cineplex Cinemas Empress Walk, with two screenings at 12:30pm and 4:00pm. As always, come early and enjoy some coffee, tea and cookies.

Opera lover Katherine Mitchell wasn’t looking for love a second time, not at her age, and certainly not with cranky Isaac Shapiro. But while she convalesces at a senior’s home after a broken hip, love blooms as she and Isaac warm to each other over their shared passion for music. The Second Time Around is heart-warming and romantic, as its two mismatched characters discover that it’s never too late to fall in love.

The Second Time Around is a classic, unabashedly sentimental love story,” says director Leon Marr, “and the style of the film needed to reflect that. And while fundamentally a character piece, the performances are what make it shine. To that end, I surrounded myself with veteran, theatrically trained actors, and spent a good deal of time rehearsing and planning my shots.”

Both screenings will be followed by a Q&A with director/writer Leon Marr and various cast members.
