It’s never too late to live, to laugh, to love. That is the message in
the heartwarming and uplifting new film “Reach For Me” starring
Academy Award nominees Seymour Cassel and Alfre Woodard.

 

Reach-for-Me---1.gif

Dying is hell, at least for Alvin (Seymour Cassel), a terminally ill widower confined to his hospice bed with nothing to chew on but bitter memories. Old and wonderfully irascible, he correspondingly makes life hell for everyone else around him. Alvin just wants some peace and quiet in his last days.

His wish, however, is not granted when a young, vibrant and ironically full of life Kevin becomes Alvin's hospice roommate. Through this "odd couple" relationship, Alvin learns that it’s not the minutes in our life, it’s the moments in your life that matter.

The world observed from his hospice bed provides the final proving ground where Alvin learns to make the most of the time he has, and discover the love he never knew was so close at hand. This is a heartwarming, uplifting, and very funny story of living life to its fullest.

Actor-turned-director LeVar Burton explores the age-old quandary of how we greet our final days – and who will be there with us at the end.  A stirring, life-affirming drama, the excellent ensemble cast includes Cassel, Alfre Woodard, Adrienne Barbeau, Johnny Whitworth and Lacey Chabert in beautifully crafted performances refreshingly free of false sentimentality.

Meet Oscar-nominee SEYMOUR CASSEL
who will host the film screenings with Producer Charlene Blaine-Schulenburg

Veteran actor Seymour Cassel — who will be in Sedona to host the screenings of “Reach for Me” — was nominated for an Academy Award for his role in John Cassavetes’ Faces (1968). After studying at the American Theatre Wing and the Actor’s Studio, Cassel’s early career was tied to Cassavetes, who is widely considered the first great independent film director.  Cassel made his debut in Cassavetes’ Shadows (1959), and he and Cassavetes co-starred in Too Late Blues (1961), The Webster Boy (1962), and the Don Siegel directed, The Killers (1964).  In 1971, Cassel starred as one of the title characters in Cassavetes’ film Minnie and Moskowitz.

Cassel’s work is popular around the globe, most recently having been honored at the Oldenburg International Film Festival in Germany and the Off Plus Camera Film Festival in Krakow, Poland.  He has appeared in over 170 films over the course of his career, and from his work with Robert Redford in Indecent Proposal (1993), to Burt Reynolds and Richard Dreyfuss in The Crew (2000), to Nicolas Cage in both Honeymoon in Vegas (1992) and It Could Happen to You (1994), to Warren Beatty in Dick Tracy (1990), through his many years of work with John Cassavetes, Cassel has worked with many of the all-time greats.

Cassel is prized by indie directors for two things: his positive nature, and his (perhaps) facetious declaration that he’d make any indie script he liked for the price of a plane ticket.  Cassel goes into projects with the feeling “I’m gonna have a good time in what I’m doing.  I entertain myself when I perform.  If I do that, then I can see the other performers enjoying my character.”

Cassel will be joined in Sedona by the film’s producer, Charlene Blaine-Schulenburg, who also has a role in the film.  In 2000, she formed her own production company, AMediaVision Productions, Inc., where she specializes in acquiring story rights, research and script writing. She is developing and producing dozens of true-life, inspirational stories.
