August already!

The choice I find most promising is Brick Lane.
I read the novel it's based on, and found it very moving. The film adaptation seems to be well received, so this one gets my vote.

Hmmm. Maybe there's another contender that's equal: Before the Rains
also has an Indian subcontinent flavor, looks more spectacular and action oriented than the personal and domestic BL. I'd be good with either one.

The earliest BL is at 1:20 (at Regal) which I spoze is a small drawback. BTR is at Regency at 12:25.

Pas mal!

Saw Roman de Gare.
Claude Lelouch (an oldie but a goodie) puts together a combo of suspense, humor, and romance that's an odd mix but fun, very involving if not so plausible. Recommended for francophiles.

I've seen many worse weeks...

We could go British understated family drama in When Did You Last See Your Father or do the documentary thing with The Rape of Europa , either of which should suit the effete elitists among us.
