This may not be the best weekend to venture to the cinema, but if you feel compelled, here’s what’s out there.

Lee Daniels’ The Butler

Forest Whitaker and a stellar cast helm this story of the civil right movement as seen through the eyes of a White House butler.

We’re the Millers

Jason Sudeikis stars as a small time pot dealer forced to transport a drug shipment. It’s a very funny, if deviant, road trip comedy.


This is a lighthearted and forgettable romantic comedy about a lovelorn woman obsessed with Jane Austen and her search for a real life Mr. Darcy.

The Spectacular Now

This film is not earth-shattering, but it is a respectable teen dramedy about a high school party boy running from adulthood.

Blue Jasmine

Woody Allen’s latest offering is a wonderful film showcasing the talent of Cate Blanchett. Blanchett plays a New York society wife banished to middle class life on the West coast when her husband’s fraud is exposed.

Closed Circuit

Eric Bana stars as a London barrister set to defend a terrorist he suspects may be a government agent. Unfortunately, this film wastes its potential.
