IN CONFIDENCE - Trailer from Mitch Levine on Vimeo.

This weekend (November 9 & 10), the STARZ DENVER FILM FESTIVAL hosts the world premiere of Mitch Levine’s IN CONFIDENCE. Based on a play by Deborah Pearl developed at the legendary Actors Studio (home to many of the greatest stars of stage and screen –Marlon Brando, Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, Ellen Burstyn, Harvey Keitel, Al Pacino and many others), the film stars Beege Barkette in a remarkable tour de force performance as the only character in the drama. The film tracks the life of Molly, a woman who finds herself in an unusual circumstance, makes the provocative choice to take money for sex – and the consequences that choice has on the rest of her life. In a daring cinematic choice, Molly speaks directly to camera for the entire film, which intercuts between her conscious and sub-conscious lives.

 

IN CONFIDENCE screens on Saturday, November 9 at 7:15pm and Sunday, November 10 at 9:15pm at the UA Pavilions Cinema (500 16th Street in Denver). It will be screened with VIC + FLOW SAW A BEAR, a feature film by Denis Côté, winner of the 2013 Silver Bear at the Berlin Film Festival. More information and tickets: www.denverfilm.org
