The gripping sci fi thriller Source Code is the must see in theaters right now. Potiche opens this week, and this delightful French farce of feminist self-discovery is the funniest movie in over a year, and another showcase for Catherine Deneuve (as if she needs one). The Music Never Stopped is a crowd-pleaser, especially for Baby Boomers. Certified Copy is a well-acted puzzler of an art film.
The best holdovers in theaters now are the combo thriller/love story The Adjustment Bureau and the fun and unpretentious comedy Cedar Rapids. Nora’s Will is a wry family dramedy, which is also now playing on HBO Signature as Cinco Dias Sin Nora (Five Days Without Nora).
For trailers and other choices, see Movies to See Right Now.
I haven’t yet seen Carancho, Hanna or Restless, which open this weekend. You can see trailers of upcoming films at Movies I’m Looking Forward To.
My DVD pick is Black Swan.
Movies on TV this week include A Face in the Crowd and The General on TCM.
