Blackbird Blackbird Blackberry (15) PREVIEW
March 1st - March 2nd
Wry, endearing, thoughtful, this tale of a lateblooming heroine awakened by intimations of romance and mortality is utterly refreshing.
48-year-old Etero, single by choice, lives in a small Georgian village where she runs a toiletry store. Commanding and intelligent, possessed of a stoic independence and a dry wit, she cherishes her freedom as much as the mille-feuille she repeat-orders at her local café. But when a passionate encounter brings a new recklessness into her life, she must decide whether to pursue love or continue alone.
Adapted from a first-person novel by Georgian author Tamta Melashvili, funny and sad by turns, Eka Chavleishvili is magnificent as the redoubtable Etero.
