posted by Nell Minow

Last Keepers KAComing on September 10: Aidan Quinn (TV’s Elementary, Unknown, Allegiance, Rushlights, The Greening of Whitney Brown) Virginia Madsen (The Hot Flashes, The Number 23, The Astronaut Farmer), Zosia Mamet (HBO’s Girls, The Kids are Alright), and Olympia Dukakis (Picture Perfect, Mr. Holland’s Opus, Moonstruck) star in “The Last Keepers.”  Rhea (Zosia Mamet) is the last in a long line of female mystics who have practiced their magical traditions in secret for centuries.  She lives a quiet life in the company of her parents Abigail and John (Virginia Madsen, Aidan Quinn) and grandmother Rosemarie (Olympia Dukakis). Abigail and Rosemarie each have their own individual powers, but legend has it that a chosen one will inherit all the powers of the mystics and use them to fight evil. As Rhea becomes aware of her destiny and develops her considerable gifts, she is faced with the biggest decision of her young life.
