World Premiere of "New York Lately" at the 2009 Sedona Film Festival, Wed February 25 and Sat February 28

New York, New York -- February 10, 2009 -- The independent film "New York Lately" will have its World Premiere screening at the Sedona Film Festival, on Wednesday, February 25, 2009 at 9:30pm and on Saturday, February 28, 2009, at 7:30pm at the Harkins Theaters Sedona 6. The 15th annual Sedona International Film Festival, named the "Fest to Impress" by MovieMaker Magazine runs February 24 through March 1, 2009 in Sedona, Arizona. Writer/Director Gary King will be in attendance with select cast for both screenings.

"New York Lately" is a feature film drama following multiple characters as they weave through their daily lives struggling to find happiness. However, happiness to each of them is defined differently. Using New York as the backdrop, King interweaves several unrelated tales into a larger tapestry that not only pulls viewers into these intimate day-to-day lives, but also draws on those interactions to show how we are not all that different from each other.

Here's what critics are saying about "New York Lately"

"…an absolutely wonderful piece of work." — ROGUE CINEMA
"…an original, funny and poignant slice of New York City" — FILM ARCADE
"…breathtaking and emotionally powerful…" — TCWREVIEWS
"…smart, lively and engaging…" — SONIC CINEMA
"I never thought that watching relationships fail could be so heartwarming." — PULPMOVIES
"…smart camera work…perfect pacing, superb acting…" — FILMFANATIX

The film is packed with rising talent featuring powerhouse performances by the ensemble cast and amazing music provided by incredible up and coming musicians. This is a dazzling independent film not to be missed.

King also served as producer and self-financed the film by cashing out his entire 401K. King says, "It's definitely an independent film in every sense of the word." He adds, "the film moves through its various stories without attempting to make character intersections any more meaningful than the random nature of life itself. The effect is a mosaic of New York City and its everyday people, living everyday lives. It's really amazing to see how audiences have responded to it all."
