Sunset

Sunday, January 13th at 7:30 pm

Described as “the work of a master,” with breathtaking cinematography, Sunset shines as the latest film by Academy Award winner Lazlo Nemes.

About the Film - Sunset, takes us to Budapest in 1913, into the very heart of a thriving Europe on the verge of World War I. The film tells the personal story of a young woman looking for her lost past, but also chronicles the death of an old way of life and the birth of the 20th Century. 

The young Irisz Leiter arrives in the Hungarian capital with high hopes to work as a milliner at Leiter, the legendary hat store founded by her late parents, but she is quickly sent away by the new owner, Oszkár Brill. While preparations are under way at the store, to host important, wealthy, royal guests, a man abruptly comes to Irisz, looking for a Kálmán Leiter, who he says is her brother. 

The young Irisz stays in Budapest in order to track down her brother, the only link to her lost past. Her quest takes her, and the viewer, through the dark streets of Budapest--where only the Leiter hat store shines--into the turmoil of a civilization on the verge of its downfall.
