Today’s top five things to do in Summit County

Winner of multiple awards during the 2014 film festival circuit, ‘Una Vida’ is dedicated to finding a cure for Alzheimer’s disease, an homage to the musical culture of New Orleans and, at its core, a story of redemption for all of the central characters. Neuroscientist Dr. Alvaro Cruz, haunted by dreams of the mother he lost to the disease that is the sixth-leading cause of death in the United States, finds solace in discovering, assisting and eventually reuniting a family torn asunder by poverty and disease. Aunjanue Ellis, who masterfully portrays the afflicted ‘Una Vida’ and also appears in ‘The Help,’ has the ability to lose focus in her eyes, snapping back to reality when music or memories stir her to do so. Her singing voice, sorrowful and beautiful, drives the narrative and enraptures Cruz and the audience. ‘Una Vida’ will screen at 6 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 21, at the Riverwalk Center to close the Breckenridge Film Festival.
