FREE SCREENING:
THE WORLD WITHOUT YOU

Saturday, Nov. 6 at 7:00 p.m.


Based on the acclaimed novel by Joshua Henkin, “The World Without You” deals with a grieving family that gathers on the Fourth of July weekend to honor the memory of their journalist son, Leo Frankel, who was killed in Iraq the previous year. They are confronted with old hurts as well as many dark secrets that threaten to tear the fragile threads barely holding the family together.


Leo's mother, Marilyn, entrenched in grief, drops a bombshell when she announces she's leaving her husband, David, who has moved on from his mourning and still holds a grudge against Leo for his decision to go to Iraq and leave his wife and toddler behind.


Meanwhile, Leo’s widow, Thisbe, struggles to come to terms with how falling in love with a new man will change her dynamic with the family. Personal quarrels and long-held animosity between Leo’s siblings plague the family, only being intensified by his memorial, while his sister, Noelle, grapples with the fact that she was the last to see Leo alive during a trip to Jerusalem.


Will this dysfunctional-family reunion bring them closer together, or drive them further apart?



This free screening is sponsored by the Cultural Committee of the Jewish Community of Sedona and the Verde Valley.
