Man in the Chair (2007)
A few weeks ago a friend mine called me and told that I had to watch a film called Man in the Chair on the Sundance Channel. He said that Christopher Plummer was in it, and that was good enough for me.
I had no idea that I was about to experience a film of absolute beauty. The writing, directing, acting, etc are beyond praise.
Plummer expertly plays a film gaffer who has not worked since 1968 and becomes involved with a young man attempting to make a student film to enter a competition for a film school scholarship. What ensues is a film about true friendship, elder abuse, animal neglect, and the raising of the human spirit.
All of the actors are superb, but special mention must be made of M. Emmet Walsh's performance of a writer who has not worked in decades. Perfection.
Actually, perfection sums up this film.
Thanks to all involved, especially writer/director Michael Schroeder, for this gift of a film.
