The Romance of Loneliness, the debut feature of Memphis-based filmmaking team Sarah Ledbetter and Matteo Servente, premieres tonight with two screenings at Malco's Paradiso theater.
The first screening, which will be preceded by an in-theater concert from Deering & Down, is sold out, but as far as we know there are still tickets left for the second screening, at 9:15 p.m.
After tonight's premiere the film — a drama shot last year that centers around a group of related women, including Memphis musician/actress Amy LaVere and veteran Hollywood supporting player Lynn Cohen — will open Friday for a week-long run at Studio on the Square.
The Flyer talked to Ledbetter and Servente about the project. You can read that feature in this week's edition, on the streets today and online tomorrow.
