Robert Redford stars in “All is Lost” about a man lost at sea, showing in Ludlow on Saturday.

Saturday, Sept. 5 at 7 p.m. — LUDLOW — FOLA (Friends of Ludlow Auditorium) will feature the film, “All is Lost” on Saturday, Sept. 5, at 7 p.m., at the Ludlow Town Hall Auditorium, 37 S. Depot Street, Ludlow..

“All is Lost” stars Robert Redford in what many critics believe to be his greatest acting performance in his career. What is unique about this film is the fact that Redford is the only actor in it. It is a tale not simply of man against the sea but man against himself.

“All Is Lost” is a 2013 survival drama film written and directed by J. C. Chandor. The film stars Robert Redford as a man lost at sea. Redford is the only cast member, and the film has very few spoken words.

Somewhere in the Indian Ocean (“1700 nautical miles from the Sumatra Straits”), a man (Robert Redford) says, “I’m sorry. I know that means little at this point, but I am. I tried. I think you would all agree that I tried. To be true, to be strong, to be kind, to love, to be right, but I wasn’t.” He declares, “All is lost.”

As with all FOLA movies, admission is free and open to everyone; donations are appreciated. Popcorn and water will be provided. For info, call 802-228-7239 or visit
