Opening today

Adam movie shoot_MG_9203

Quentin Tarantino's Inglourious Basterds is the biggie (review here), but there are several other, smaller films opening today as well. The slight but touching Adam is about the relationship between a young woman (Rose Byrne) and a man with Asperger's syndrome, exceedingly well played by Hugh Dancy (review here).

The Spanish-language comedy Casi Divas (Almost Divas) was a big hit in its native Mexico and should appeal to fans of telenovelas and Charo, although I found it shrill and gaudy (review here).

Stiller-marc-pease The Marc Pease Experience, an endearingly odd comedy about a man (Jason Schwartzman) still obsessed with the lessons of his drama teacher (Ben Stiller) eight years after graduating high school, was dumped into 10 cities by distributor Paramount Pictures with zero marketing and promotion. The movie deserved better (review here).

The prolific Robert Rodriguez returns with another one for the children, the comic fantasy Shorts (Connie Ogle's review is here). Connie also reviewed the comedy Post Grad (review here), which she calls "an annoying, tedious little film." I'm more than happy to take her word for it and skip it.

And in case you missed it earlier this summer, the moody sci-fi mind-game Moon returns to the Cosford Cinema and Miami Beach Cinematheque (review here).
