Watch: Patrick Stewart Stars as a Ballet Instructor in 'Match' Trailer
"You are very different than anyone I have ever met." IFC Films has debuted a brand new trailer for a film called Match, starring Patrick Stewart as an aging ballet instructor in New York City who takes up a job at Julliard. He's interviewed by a woman and her husband about dance in the 1960's, but he soon learns there's much more to her connection to him. Carla Gugino also stars, along with Matthew Lillard and Maduka Steady. This is based on a play, which makes sense considering Stewart's involvement, but more than anything it just looks like a heartwarming, life-affirming look at how to live in this wild world. Enjoy.
Here's the first official trailer for Stephen Belber's Match, direct from IFC's YouTube:
IFC Films presents Match, starring acclaimed actor Patrick Stewart as a Manhattan ballet instructor interviewed by a woman and her husband for her dissertation on the history of dance in 1960's New York. It becomes increasingly clear they're prying into his sordid past in this explosive drama of sex, secrets, and lies based on the Tony-nominated play. Match is written and directed by playwright Stephen Belber, based on the play of the same name also by Belber. The film first premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year, before being picked up by IFC Films. They're releasing Stephen Belber's Match in limited theaters starting January 14th, plus VOD starting January 16th early next year. Stay tuned. Anyone interested?

We knew already and again we can see Patrick Stewart is one of the greatest artists of his generation. But Lillard, I mean, I am stunned. Who would have thought... Looks like he pulls off an amazing performance.

Patrick Stewart finally doing something worth of his talent. And Carla Gugino is always nice to see...

It's actually just Jean-Luc Picard on vacation on the holodeck. 😛
