Story


Patrick Stewart gives a captivating performance in this witty, emotionally gripping adaptation of director Stephen Belber's own Tony Award-nominated play. Stewart stars as Tobi, an eccentric, pot-smoking Manhattan ballet instructor whose quiet life is interrupted by the arrival of a young couple (Carla Gugino & Matthew Lillard) from Seattle, presumably there to interview him about his colorful life as a dancer in the 1960s. As Tobi spins salacious tales from his former career, an ulterior motive for the couple's visit emerges, forcing the trio to confront a secret that may connect them all. Driven by Stewart's tour-de-force performance, Match moves masterfully between razor-sharp comic banter and heartrending poignancy.

“..a film with just enough upscale appeal to support a small arthouse run, but not enough personality to distinguish it in a crowded indie marketplace..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]
“..fitfully entertaining..”
by Gabe Toro [The Playlist]
“..it's an irrepressible and improbably entertaining performance, alive with feverish energy and florid line deliveries..”
