Join us for a special one-time NYFCS screening of the acclaimed new film YEAR BY THE SEA and join Peter Travers (Rolling Stone, ABC-TV) as he hosts an evening with Star Karen Allen and other cast and crew members recorded in New York!

Based on the acclaimed novel by New York Times best-selling author Joan Anderson, YEAR BY THE SEA chronicles empty-nester Anderson (Karen Allen) decides to not follow her relocated husband to Kansas. Instead, she retreats to a tiny village in Cape Cod to rediscover herself and redefine her life.

Plagued with guilt, she questions her decision until stumbling upon a spirited mentor, Joan Erikson (Celia Imrie)—author and wife of famed psychologist Erik Erikson, who coined the term “identity crisis.” With a support group that includes her literary agent and a host of locals, Joan learns to embrace the ebb and flow of life—ultimately discovering the balance between self and sacrifice, obligation and desire.
