Film Fan Fridays for Friday October 28, 2011

Hello Film Fans and Fanatics!

Welcome to Film Fan Fridays for Friday October 28, 2011! I really don't have too much to say this week as I'm still recovering from the Toronto After Dark Film Festival which closed last night to a packed out and boy, I am tired. Even so, let's look at this weeks astounding 11 releases.

In limited release this week we have Ayn Rand adaptation of Atlas Shrugged: Part I, art house fare with Almodovar's The Skin I Live In, western Straight to Hell Returns and Cell 211. We also have Martha Marcy May Marlene which played well at TIFF and the two documentaries Buck and Inni.

In wide release this week we have as Shakespeare a fraud ? film Anonymous, science fiction set film In Time, Puss in Boots which is based on a character in a French fairy tale from 1697 by Charles Perrault. Last up for wide releases is The Rum Diary starring Johnny Depp.

Have a great weekend!

Shannon
