The Picture House is delighted to have reopened the theater – but we are still offering virtual screenings of must-see films. When you watch a virtual screening, you will be taken to the distributor’s viewing site, but rest assured, just as when you’re in the theater, a portion of your ticket price supports The Picture House and helps us keep going. Thank you! (By the way, it’s our 100th birthday – visit thepicturehouse.org/centennial to see what’s going on!)
The Picture House presents Final Set
Once described as a young professional tennis prodigy, Thomas (Cesar-winner Alex Lutz) never had the career in the game he had hoped for. At 37, he decides to return to the French Open at Rolland Garros, in spite of his declining physical fitness and shattered knee. Although his wife Eve (Ana Girardot) and mother Judith (Oscar-nominee Kirstin Scott Thomas) advise him to give up on his unlikely ambition, Thomas obsessively perseveres. He will have to face his own demons as well as the intense competitive qualifying rounds to reach the tournament and eventually face a young tennis genius who disturbingly reminds him of his younger self.
