Film: Ondine

Tonight, Oct. 1, at 7:30 p.m. the Martha’s Vineyard Film Society is screening Ondine, the story of a simple fisherman named Syracuse, starring the not so simple Colin Farrell, who catches a beautiful and mysterious woman in his trawler’s nets. The woman seems to be dead, but then comes alive before Syracuse’s eyes. He thinks he may be seeing things. However, with the help of his ailing yet irrepressible daughter, he comes to believe that the fantastical might be possible.

Ondine and Syracuse fall in love, but then the real world intercedes in the form of a terrible car crash and the return of a dark and violent figure from Ondine’s past. To find out how it all ends, head out to the Katharine Cornell Theatre on 54 Spring street in Vineyard Haven.

Doors open 30 minutes prior to screening time. Admissions is $8 and $5 for film society members. For more information, visit or call 774-392-2972.
