PICK OF THE WEEK
Those who were waiting for the romantic reunion of Titatnic
's Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet may be surprised by what they find in Revolutionary Road
. Frank and April, a married couple in the 1950s, have always seen themselves as special, different, ready and willing to live their lives based on higher ideals. So, as soon as they move into their new house on Revolutionary Road, they proudly declare their independence from the suburban inertia that surrounds them and determine never to be trapped by the social confines of their era. Yet for all their charm, beauty and irreverence, the Wheelers find themselves becoming exactly what they didn't expect. Critics are saying Revolutionary Road
is brilliantly acted and emotionally powerful.
THE TEENAGE ANGST MOVIE OF THE WEEK
This looks like a good teenage date movie. Three hot girls, four guys, and one mega-swanky yacht collide for a serious night of drugs and sexual deviancy. One debaucherous act goes too far though, turning this teen joy ride into a weekend of bloody bedlam. Critics are saying Donkey Punch
is filled with extremes of both sex and violence and well-acted.
THE KID'S FANTASY ADVENTURE FLICK THAT COULDN'T
This might be the winner if you're looking to kill some time with the kids. Mo Folchart possesses a secret ability to bring characters from books to life when he reads them aloud. But when Mo accidentally brings a power-hungry villain from a rare childrens fable to life, the villain kidnaps Mo's daughter and demands Mo bring other evil fictional characters to life. In an attempt to rescue his daughter, Mo assembles a disparate group of friends --both real and magic--and embarks on a journey to save her and set things right. Critics are saying Inkheart
is heavy on cliches and light on charm.
