Toby is an eccentric, pot-smoking Manhattan ballet instructor whose quiet life is interrupted by the arrival of a young couple from Seattle, presumably there to interview him about his colorful life as a dancer in the 1960's. As Tobi spins salacious tales from his former career, an ulterior motive for the couple's visit emerges, forcing the trio to confront a secret that may connect them all. Driven by Stewart's tour-de-force performance, it moves masterfully between razor-sharp comic banter and heartrending poignancy.

Winter sleep: Kiş uykusu Cover
Nuri Bilge Ceylan
Zeynep Özbatur
Ebru Ceylan
Haluk Bilginer
Melisa Sözen
Set in the picturesque and striking landscape of Cappadocia in Central Anatolia, Winter Sleep focuses on a small village, half-empty, in the wintry off-season. The film follows a local celebrity, Aydin, an actor who runs a small hotel with his wife, writes a column for the local newspaper, and is toying with the idea of producing a book on Turkish theatre. With a steady, penetrating gaze reminiscent of that which Ingmar Bergman brought to his chamber pieces, Ceylan cuts through the smug self-image of a man who considers himself of elevated stature, but is ultimately brought face-to-face with who and what he truly is.
