Lone Star: Friday Picks


by Stephen Becker 12 Nov 2010

Here’s what looks good on Friday at the Lone Star International Film Festival.

CTA TBD

Here’s what looks good on Friday at the Lone Star International Film Festival:

Another Year – Lesley Manville is getting big Oscar buzz for playing one half of a couple who is surrounded by a group of lonely friends. The great Jim Broadbent plays her husband, and Mike Leigh directs. I hated Leigh’s last effort, the ridiculous Happy-Go-Lucky, but I loved the one before that, Vera Drake. So I’ll give this one the benefit of the doubt.

The Desert of Forbidden Art РDuring the height of the U.S.S.R. and the KGB, it was a rough time for artists. Many of them were sent off to the Gulags or mental hospitals. But their work  survived thanks to a fellow artist who rescued it and started a museum in the Uzbekistan desert.

Miss Nobody – Looking for something dark? How about a comedy about a secretary who breaks through her company’s glass ceiling by murdering the people in her way. (9:30 p.m., AMC Palace 1)
