Just in time for the weekend, here’s a quick run down of the films opening this week in cinemas across town.
Returning from last year’s Film Festival is Lady Chatterley, a French adaptation of an earlier (“kinder, gentler” according to Ebert) version of D. H. Lawrence’s famous erotic novel Lady Chatterley’s Lover. It sounds like it could have been titled There Will Be Sex: Rialto only.
Also returning, but from the more recent French Film Festival is big-budget costume drama MoliÃ¨re, about the great dramatist played by Romain Duris.That one is a Penthouse exclusive.
Finally this week, 300‘s Gerard Butler romances Hilary Swank from the dead in P.S., I Love You. Described by one reviewer as having a “high ick factor”. Readings and Regent-on-Manners.
All these films will be reviewed at Funerals & Snakes by next Wednesday (and in the Capital Times on the same day).
