July preview

Moonrise Kingdom  June 29  Wes Anderson's new feature. Set in scenic 60s New England, two young lovers flee their town for a romp in the woods, sparking a town-wide kidhunt. You're gonna wanna come see this.

Monsieur Lazhar  June 29  An Algerian immigrant talks his way into teaching at a Montreal elementary school. Nominated for an Academy Award. (In French, Arabic.)

To Rome with Love  July 6  Another Americans-abroad film from Woody Allen. Looks like a great cast...including Greta Gerwig from the recent Damsels in Distress.

Safety Not Guaranteed  A writer and two interns set off to investigate the guy who wrote this classified:  "Wanted: Someone to go back in time with me. This is not a joke. You'll get paid after we get back. Must bring your own weapons. I have only done this once before. Safety not guaranteed." Looks like a lot of fun.
