Must Watch: Trailer for Ethan Hawke's 'Seymour: An Introduction'
Play life more beautifully. This is a documentary that I hope a few people take an interest in, because it's such a heartwarming and inspiring profile of a humble man. Seymour: An Introduction is a wonderful documentary directed by Ethan Hawke profiling piano player and teacher Seymour Bernstein, who gave up fame after a successful concert tour and has dedicated his life to teaching the wonder of music. As hinted at in the title, the doc is an introduction to Mr. Bernstein, giving audiences a glimpse at who he is and how inspiring he is. I first saw this film at the Telluride Film Festival and wrote this in my review: "Music is love, love is music. All I want to do is put on some Schubert, Bach and/or Beethoven and stare up at the stars…"
Here's the first trailer for Ethan Hawke's doc Seymour: An Introduction, in high def from Apple:
Meet Seymour Bernstein: a virtuoso pianist, veteran New Yorker, and true original who gave up a successful concert career to teach music. In this wonderfully warm, witty, and intimate tribute from his friend, Ethan Hawke, Seymour shares unforgettable stories from his remarkable life and eye-opening words of wisdom, as well as insightful reflections on art, creativity, and the search for fulfillment. This documentary, titled Seymour: An Introduction, is directed by actor Ethan Hawke, who has directed before. The two have been friends for a longtime. This first premiered at the Telluride, Toronto and New York Film Festivals last year. IFC Films will open Seymour: An Introduction starting March 13th this year.
I'M ALL IN!
