Tron: Legacy – Castro
Sita Sings the Blues – Red Vic (Thursday & Sunday)
This animated film is highly visually appealing, with collages and 1920s music and a story known by more than a few in the tech industry. Filmmaker Nina Paley and the movie’s distributor‘s donating all the proceeds of the screenings to the Red Vic.
Rabbit Hole – Embarcadero
Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart in a John Cameron Mitchell (John Cameron Mitchell !?!) film about keeping a family intact despite horrible circumstances. Also, with Sandra Oh, and based on a Pulitzer Prize winning play.
Animal Kingdom – Opera Plaza
Australian underworld mob/crook films definitely have a niche. In the American market? Maybe not so much. A robber runs from bad detectives and into the hands of the witness protection plan – equally bad. Guy Pearce suits up again.
True Grit – Everywhere
Coen Brothers once again. Josh Brolin – fresh off the retard of Jonah Hex, is again a western-y guy, with Jeff Bridges all old, and Matt Damon to perform his shirt basket routine. Oh yeah, it’s a Western. Unfortunately the hot cast from Tombstone couldn’t make it.
