SYNOPSIS: LIMITED TICKETS are available at UPSTATE FILMS in RHINEBECK for the Rhinebeck screening.
A romantic drama about forbidden romance, How He Fell in Love is a story of love doomed to failure. Struggling young musician Travis (Matt McGorry of Orange Is the New Black and How to Get Away With Murder) has fallen head over heels for the beautiful, older, married yoga teacher Ellen (Amy Hargreaves of Blue Ruin and Homeland). Alternating between vulnerability and pulsating sexuality, McGorry and Hargreaves seduce the audience with an impossible love story that is mesmerizing to watch. With New York City as the backdrop to their love, and a steamy getaway to the country as added spice to their already hot relationship, the lovers traverse this dangerous road with alternating abandon and control. Supported by veteran character actor Mark Blum, who delivers a touching performance as Henry, the jilted husband, that comes to an emotional peak in the film's climax. Will new love or old relationships persevere? Come see for yourself.
