“Downtown Express"

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

Violinist Philippe Quint and singer-songwriter Nellie McKay discuss their roles in the new film “Downtown Express.” Set in the world of Russian immigrants living in New York City, the film explores the clash of old world values and the lure and excitement of a new country. It’s the first time that a classical musician has been featured as the lead in an American film. “Downtown Express” opens April 20 at the Quad.


Philippe Quint has an album coming out April 24: Mendelssohn, Bruch & Beethoven.

THe two of them are incredibly charming. It piqued my interest to see the movie.
