Film Fan Fridays for Friday December 2, 2011

Hello Film Fans and Fanatics!

Welcome to Film Fan Fridays for Friday December 2, 2011!

In limited release this week we have six films to choose from and I know many people have been anxiously awaiting Shame from director Steve McQueen (Hunger) starring Michael Fassbender & Carey Mulligan, which has some of the hottest buzz of any film this year. We have two Canadian films in the mix this week with drama Everything and Everyone and documentary Surviving Progress, both of which look very interesting. More documentary goodness with the film My Perestroika centred on 5 people who grew up behind the iron curtain and then we have the Bollywood biopic The Dirty Picture centred on film star Silk Smitha. One film I'm thrilled to see in releases is the highly acclaimed French film Tomboy which follows a young girl who after moving with her family is mistaken for a boy, from director Céline Sciamma (Water Lilies / Naissance des pieuvres).

In wide release this week we have just one release with the Bollywood action flick I Am Singh. Wow, I'm not sure we've every had a week with a sole wide release. Especially in December. Never know what each Friday will bring!

Have a great weekend!

Shannon
