The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to partner with Old Town Center for the Arts (OTCA) to bring movies to Cottonwood!

“Monday Movies on Main” continues on Monday, Nov. 14 with the Cottonwood premiere of “Being Julia” at 7 p.m. at Old Town Center for the Arts.

“Being Julia” features an award-winning all-star cast, including Annette Bening, Jeremy Irons, Michael Gambon and Shaun Evans.

Annette Bening was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actress and won a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Musical or Comedy for her performance in “Being Julia”.

“Being Julia” — based on W. Somerset Maugham’s “Theatre” and adapted by Academy Award-winner Ronald Harwood (“The Pianist”) — is an intoxicating combination of wicked comedy and smart drama, starring Annette Bening as the beautiful and beguiling actress Julia Lambert.

In London in 1938, Julia Lambert is at her peak, physically and professionally, but her successful theatrical career and her marriage to handsome impresario Michael Gosselyn (Jeremy Irons) have become stale and unfulfilling. She longs for novelty, excitement, sparks.

Enter Tom Fennell (Shaun Evans), a younger man who claims to be Julia's greatest fan. Finding his ardor irresistible, she decides that romance is the best antidote to a mid-life crisis and embarks on a passionate affair.

Life becomes more daring and exciting, until Julia's young lover callously tries to relegate her to a supporting role. But on opening night, Julia reveals that she is a more formidable actress than anyone ever imagined.

“Annette Bening gives a wickedly funny tour-de-force performance!” — The Boston Globe
