I’M SO EXCITED
Pedro Almodóvar’s first pure comedy since Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown (1988) reunites him with Penélope Cruz, Cecilia Roth and Antonio Banderas. But the movie is stolen by three azafatos (male flight attendants) who promise to make your trip “as pleasurable as possible.”
Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg are two undercover cops stealing money from the mob while being set up by it.
Cockneys vs. Zombies
(from the Shaun of the Dead team).
WE’RE THE MILLERS
Jennifer Aniston is at her sexiest and funniest as a stripper-turned-“mom” in a fake family led by a drug dealer (Saturday Night Live’s Jason Sudeikis).
The amazing true story of Cecil Gaines, an African-American who served as White House butler 1952-1986. Arguably, Forest Whitaker’s most important role since Bird and The Last King of Scotland.
David Gordon Green’s Prince Avalanche, with Emile Hirsche and Paul Rudd, filmed in and around Austin.
SHORT TERM 12
This drama set inside a foster care facility swept both Jury and Audience awards at this year’s South by Southwest.
Rebecca Hall and Eric Bana are two lawyers and ex-lovers involved in a terrorist trial, where their every move is observed by the powers that be. It takes place in England, because in the U.S., obviously, we’ve never had to worry about the government monitoring citizens.
Is this the year’s best documentary? A look at the life of the reclusive author of The Catcher in the Rye.
