HIFF 25th Anniversary Screening: “The Piano” at Guild Hall

Set in 1851, a mute Scottish woman arrives in colonial New Zealand for an arranged marriage, with her young daughter and beloved piano in tow. Her practical new husband refuses to transport the piano to their home and makes a deal with his neighbor, George Baines to take the piano off his hands. Attracted to Ada, Baines agrees to return the piano in exchange for piano lessons that become a series of increasingly charged sexual encounters. As pent-up emotions of rage and desire swirl around all three characters, the wilderness begins to consume the tiny European enclave.

Tickets are $15 and $13 for members. Guild Hall is located at 158 Main St, East Hampton, NY 11937. www.guildhall.org.
