End of season and review of "Boy"

Thanks for another great season -- Fall 2013. It was a wide variety of fun and not-so-fun; foreign and independent. The constant was you! We'll start planning the Winter 2013 season next week and let you know as soon as it is set.

Until then, let us know what films you especially liked, and which films you think we should consider for future seasons.

Happy holidays!

Review of last week's film ("Boy", 3.5 stars)
Steven says: It's always fun to look back at the 1980s, and this film doesn't make much fun of it. Instead, it shows how American pop culture permeated even the far recesses of New Zealand in 1984. The imaginations of two young brothers help keep their lives moving forward even as their father returns after a long absence. It takes the oldest child's adult reaction to his father's messed up life for the father to start to mature himself.
