As a Juilliard professor is interviewed by a woman and her husband for her dissertation on the history of dance in 1960s New York, it becomes increasingly clear that there are ulterior motives to the couple's visit.
Tobi Powell (Patrick Stewart), an aging Juilliard dance professor with a colorful and international past, is interviewed by a woman and her husband (Carla Gugino and Matthew Lillard) for a dissertation she's writing about the history of dance in New York in the 1960s. As the interview proceeds, it becomes increasingly clear that there are ulterior motives to the couple's visit. Explosive revelation is followed by questions about truth versus belief. It is a story about responsibility, artistic commitment, and love.Written by

Yeah, last month, he was... suspended for use of excessive force.
How surprising. What did he do?
He arrested some small time drug dealer and beat the shit out of him for no apparent reason.
What sort of dealer?

The acting is amazing & the movie is worth watching for that. Stewart and Gugino really plays well off of each other.
"Absolutely I remember Gloria Renaldi" Tobi (Stewart) is a acclaimed dance instructor in New York City at Juilliard. He agrees to be interviewed at his apartment regarding the history of dance. When the two interviewers, Lisa (Gugino) and Mike (Lillard) show up things quickly turn tense when Mike mentions a name from Tobi's past. Secrets are revealed and lives are changed. This is a good movie, but it is not for everyone. First off, this is based off a Broadway play and the movie plays as one. For the most part there is one location and only 3 actors. This is just talking. The acting is amazing though and the movie is worth watching for that. Stewart seems like the perfect choice for this role and Gugino really plays well off of him. All that said this is again a movie for a select few. I liked it OK but wouldn't watch it again. Overall, if you like Broadway one act plays then I would check this out, if you aren't a fan of that type of entertainment then I would skip this one. I give it a B-.
