Sinister

I get it. You’ve just emerged from your half-hour long Metro ride only to be bothered by those Jews for Jesus pamphleteers and the Hooverville set up at Farragut North, so you just want to sit down at your desk with a bagel and get to work. No sweat. I can respect that. But it’s not like you’re going to fix the economy today or anything so why not surf around on our site, check out some short films or something, and go buy a ticket for our Tugg screening of Sinister – the new horror film from Scott Derrickson starring Ethan Hawke? We still need a few more confirmed seats before it’s a definite, and you can be the one to make it happen. If enough tickets are sold, it’ll take place Tuesday evening at the Regal Gallery Place Stadium 4 – which means you can snag a nice Legal Sea Foods dinner before and go bowling after. Plus, if you buy two tickets, when your date asks what the occasion is, you can suavely say. “Because it’s Tuesday.” Everyone loves that. Need more convincing? Check out the trailer:

Lisa Cholodenko

Director Lisa Cholodenko’s latest film, and her biggest success to date, was the domestic drama with paternity issues The Kids Are All Right. Starring names like Mark Ruffalo, Annette Bening, Julianne Moore, Mia Wasikowska, and Josh Hutcherson, The Kids Are All Right was an ensemble acting piece, and essentially a small in scope character study, so it may come as some surprise that the newest project the direct has in the works sounds like it’s going to be pretty plot-heavy. The Wrap reports that Cholodenko has signed on to make a political thriller called November Criminals. Set in Washington D.C., this Steve Knight- (Eastern Promises) penned script tells the story of a student who has to explore the underbelly of Washington society in order to investigate the death of a classmate. Those details, in conjunction with the film’s title, probably serve as a good indication that this story isn’t going to be a very kind representation of our current political system.
