Join St. John's as we take part in the 2017 JCC Rochester International Jewish Film Festival.

Second Time Around is a touching film about two senior citizens who discover it’s never too late to fall in love, in the unabashedly sentimental romance. An independent and vivacious widow, opera-loving Katherine Mitchell, finds herself in an assisted living facility with a broken hip. Determined to make a quick recovery and get back on her feet, she puts on a brave face and tries to ingratiate herself with the other residents, a quirky mix of characters. She seems unable, however, to soften the heart of Isaac Shapiro, a cranky and cynical Polish immigrant still raw from the death of his wife years earlier. Over time, a shared love of music slowly thaws their relationship and sows the seeds of a blossoming romance. Together they will face family upheaval and unforeseen illness while embarking on an unexpected, tentative, but ultimately welcome journey into the future.

Tickets can be purchased at the door or in advance by calling 585-461-2000 or going on line.
