One night at a restaurant, Warren Lowe notices a striking older woman celebrating her 80th birthday. He's seen her before. Thirty years earlier, when she was 49 and he was 19, they were entangled in an intense, secret love affair, which ended when Gail moved away. As he struggles to connect the vivacious, middle-aged woman of his past with the old woman he sees now, the two of them take a bittersweet journey through time, place and memory. "The Moor" is a haunting tale about love and loss, youth and old age, dreams and disappointments, truths and lies. Written by
The Moor is a beautiful, touching film. It deals with memories of good times in the past. It shows how we deal with those memories. It is an unusual memorable love story. I saw it with the cast and crew. A friend of mine plays Rita, the waitress. It's fun and heartwarming, at the same time.
It premiered at the Seattle Film Festival. It also just got into the LA International Shorts Film Festival. The Moor will screen on September 11th, 2005, at the Arclight Theatre in Hollywood. If you live in the LA area and can catch the film, do so. It is a very rewarding, moving experience!
