Film Fan Fridays for Friday November 26, 2010

Hello Film Fans and Fanatics!

Welcome to Film Fan Fridays for Friday November 26, 2010!

In limited release this week we are mostly keeping it real, starting with Made in Dagenham, a dramatization of the 1968 strike against sexual discrimination in the UK which looks amazingly sweet for such a topic - Sally Hawkins also looks fantastic in it. We have holiday centric release with The Nutcracker in 3D and documentary Cool It round out the Friday releases. We also had the Thursday November 25, 2010 releases of biopic Vision: From the Life of Hildegard von Bingen and the highly acclaimed documentary Waste Land.

In wide release this week the new titles we have Bollywood goodness with Break Ke Baed and also have Tere Ishq Nachaya (make note that it's only playing with English subtitles in limited locations). We also have Tangled, Love and Other Drugs, Faster and Burlesque all release for US Thanksgiving and debuted in theatres just this past Wednesday.

Have a great weekend!
