FYI Time magazine voted the movie Salinger one of the worst movies of 2013.

Greetings and Happy New Year Movie Friends,
Hope this finds you well and warm (despite the snow falling as I write).
A very busy December kept me from planning a movie for the group, but wanted to give you all a "Heads-Up" for what's coming up. I've got two outings in mind, but no date yet.
First up - August, Osage County - likely mid January. Here is a synopsis and link to the Official Website:
August: Osage County tells the dark, hilarious and deeply touching story of the strong-willed women of the Weston family, whose lives have diverged until a family crisis brings them back to the Midwest house they grew up in, and to the dysfunctional woman who raised them. The Pulitzer Prize-winning play of the same name by Tracy Letts (Killer Joe, Bug) made its Broadway debut in December 2007 after premiering at Chicago's legendary Steppenwolf Theatre earlier that year. It continued with a successful international run and was the winner of five Tony Awards in 2008, including Best Play. The film version of August: Osage County is directed by John Wells (The Company Men) and features an all-star cast, including Meryl Streep, Julia Roberts, Ewan McGregor, Chris Cooper, Abigail Breslin, Benedict Cumberbatch, Juliette Lewis, Margo Martindale, Dermot Mulroney, Julianne Nicholson, Sam Shepard and Misty Upham.

Second, our annual trip to the Oscar Nominated Shorts. These will open Friday, January 31st for a two week run. I'll let you know the details on this - most likely February 2nd or 8th. As usual, there are separate showings of the Live Action and the Animated nominees.
Happy Winter, hope to see you at the movies!
