New films for 11/20

November 19, 2009

Hello all!  As awards season heats up, we’ve got a couple more notable films rolling our way for the week of 11/20.  Heads up!

First off, we’ve got the British coming-of-age tale, An Education.  This one stars relative newcomer Carey Mulligan as self-possessed school girl caught between the desire to study at Oxford, and the lusty intrigue brought her way by a sophisticated older man (ubiquitous Peter Sarsgaard).  Miss Mulligan is generating major Oscar buzz, so Academy fans should mark this one down.  The film starts Friday @ Cherrydale.

Second comes the controversial hurricane that is Precious: Based on the Novel PUSH by Saphire.  Unless you’ve been spelunking for the past three months, you’ve heard much about this gritty, dark urban fable concerning an obese Harlem teen, and her outrageously severe hardships.  The incredible star turn by comedy mainstay Mo’Nique is more than worth the price of admission.  The film starts Friday, city-wide.

Here’s the good stuff:

 

See you at the movies!
