The Little Theater Movie and Talk Meetup Group Message Board › Movie suggestions for Saturday, Sept. 7th.
Another Summer done, I am looking forward to the Fall, movie season. "Ain't Them Bodies Saints" (Rated R, 96 min., in Theater 4 @ 7:15pm) is a Bonnie & Clyde type movie starring Casey Affleck and Rooney Marra as a couple struggling with love, a new baby, and a 25 year prison sentence for him in 1970s Texas. Also there are shining bit roles for Keith Carradine and Ben Foster. Check out the review below:

"The Spectacular Now" (Rated R, 95 min., in Theater 1 @ 7pm) is a coming of age story about Sutter Keely, a high school senior, a charmer who looks forward to devouring the world on his plate, who by accident falls in love with a "nice girl." Sutter lives in the now and Aimee dreams of the future. There is so much more to this movie in Roger Ebert's review, one of the last he wrote before passing away. It is one of Ebert's most touching reviews I have read. I miss his depth and personal connection in a movie review. Amazing review. Check it out below:

And, of course, Woody Allen with "Blue Jasmine" (Rated PG-13, 98 min., in Theater 2 @ 6:40pm). Cate Blanchett stars as a rich society woman whose society bubble burst with the incarceration and suicide of her husband. She is forced to live with her blue-collar sister and resents everything. It is a psychological tragedy of the Cate Blanchette character simultaneously living with and lying to herself. Here is a review by Ty Burr of the Boston Globe

Meet between the ticket booth for theaters 2-5 and the cafe. Look for the group and ask: "Is this the movie group?" Talk with others and choose your movie. After your movie, walk over to Ancanthus Cafe on East Ave for food, drink and discussion at the tables. Hope to see you there.
