The Edge of Heaven

Directed by Fatih Akin
Sunday, December 2, 2018 - 2:00pm

Fatih Akin weaves overlapping tales of friendship and sexuality into a powerful narrative of universal love. Six characters are drawn together by circumstances—an old man and a prostitute forging a partnership, a young scholar reconciling his past, two young women falling in love, and a mother putting the shattered pieces of her life back together. Akin’s piercing sense of the human condition and contemporary world events charge these hyperlinked stories into a multicultural powder keg. 

It has a cumulative power, both intellectual and emotional … by the end you know the characters in it so well that you can’t believe you’ve seen the movie only one, yet on a second viewing it seems completely new.” — A. O. Scott, The New York Times 

Comes close to perfection.” — Ann Hornaday, Washington Post

NOTE: While this film is unrated in the U.S., the film explores adult themes of sexuality and includes profanity.

Tickets are FREE, but one must have a ticket in hand to enter the theater.
