Starring Keith David (Platoon, The Thing, Cloud Atlas, Greenleaf) and Maria Howell (The Color Purple, Hidden Figures, Revolution, Saints and Sinners) - "Bewildered" depicts the journey of world famous, husband and wife jazz vocalists - Joseph and Sara Honoré - from the peak of their career and marriage, into the turmoil and anxiety brought on by Joseph's fall into dementia.
As life at home becomes untenable for Joseph, he is moved into a care facility for his own safety and full time treatment. There, he is befriended by Elijah - a young care worker and gifted musician - played by Myron Parker Wright (Queen Sugar, Mercy Street).
Through kindness and patience , Elijah nurtures Joseph back to singing.
Despite his otherwise ravaged brain, Joseph is helped by Elijah to recall deeply held musical memories, which provide a desperately needed connection to his beloved wife Sara.
At its core, this film is a love story, but it also sheds an important light on the proven ability of music to provide comfort and dignity to patients and their families, dealing with dementia.
