I’m throwing together a very quick new release list, but please don’t miss Eadweard.
– This independently produced biopic of the Eadweard Muybridge, the inventor of moving pictures is a fantastic film that has won multiple Film Festival Audience Awards (including Nashville and Maui). Of the films I’ve seen so far this month, this is my favorite.
– I’m not sure how or why so many actors that I like are in a movie this bad. Even a surprise appearance near the end of one of my favorite comedians could not save this. 19% on Rotten Tomatoes. 34 On Metacritic. What more do you need to know?
– From the producers of The Secret Of Kells and Song Of The Sea comes this animated tale of a girl’s epic quest to reach the North Pole. Winner of multiple film festival awards, as well as a 98% on Rotten Tomatoes.
– The director of Frozen River finally returns for her second feature. Keanu plays a defense attorney trying to get his teenage client acquitted for the murder of his wealthy father. Unfortunately it has gotten low reviews (29% on Rotten Tomatoes).
