Film Fan Fridays for Friday May 8, 2009

Hello Film Fans and Fanatics!

Welcome to Film Fan Fridays for Friday May 8, 2009!

I'm going with the groove this week. We do have a few different releases to choose from the Atom Egoyan's fascinating and questioning Adoration, new comedy Lymelife and documentary Tyson on Mike Tyson. But, I have to admit for me... it's all about Star Trek.

Be sure to check out my daily Hot Docs coverage here at Movie Moxie as it continues during the festival until May 10, 2009.

Have a great weekend!
