Ep 545: Leon Marr • Don & Katha Cato with Johnny Sweet

Mar 21, 2019

[5 mins. 10 secs.] Canadian filmmaker Leon Marr with his new romantic comedy "The Second Time Around" which stars Linda Thorson ("The Avengers") and upcoming podcast guest Stuart Margolin ("The Rockford Files"). Katherine Mitchell (Thorson), a widowed yet vibrant senior, wasn’t looking for love a second time – not at her age, and certainly not with grumpy Isaac Shapiro (Margolin). Despite the nosey bunch of seniors in the residence where Katherine convalesces after breaking her hip, she and Isaac warm to each other over their shared love of music. Against unforeseen obstacles, their love blooms and together they set out to fulfill Katherine’s lifelong dream of going to the opera in Milan. "The Second Time Around" is available to stream/download on Amazon, and also on DVD.

[1 hr. 11 mins. 5 secs.] Returning to the podcast, friends Don and Katha Cato, who together founded and run the Queens World Film Festival which will begin its 9th season on Thursday, March 21st and run through March 31st.
