Tobi Powell (Patrick Stewart), an aging Juilliard dance professor with a colorful and international past, is interviewed by a woman and her husband (Carla Gugino & Matthew Lillard) for a dissertation she’s writing about the history of dance in New York in the 1960s.
As the interview proceeds, it becomes increasingly clear that there are ulterior motives to the couple’s visit. Explosive revelation is followed by questions about truth versus belief. Match is a story about responsibility, artistic commitment, and love.
The movie Match is the antithesis to the movie Whiplash.
The film opened in NYC and Los Angeles only and earned a paltry $28,041 during its entire three week theatrical run.
Match was originally an off Broadway production starring Ray Liotta.
