New This Week

Posted 12/16/2009

DID YOU HEAR ABOUT THE MORGANS? Sarah Jessica Parker and Hugh Grant star as a couple on the rocks that gets further shaken up when they're forced into witness protection together; from Two Weeks Notice writer/director Marc Lawrence. Opens Dec. 18.

MANHATTAN Woody Allen's 1979's bittersweet mash note to the city features gorgeous widescreen black-and-white photography from Gordon Willis and a fabulous cast. TV writer Isaac (Allen) chases love and sex with teenaged Tracy (Mariel Hemingway), but it's the neurotic Mary (Diane Keaton) who comes between him and his best friend. Hopelessly romantic, unabashedly nostalgic, and comically self-reflexive, at this point Manhattan is the most quintessentially Woody Allen of his career, being explicitly about relationships--to each other, to movies--and how they shape the self. It remains an entertaining treat. At the Charles Theatre at noon Dec. 19, at 7 p.m. Dec. 21, at 9 p.m. Dec. 23.

UP Ed Asner provides the crotchety voice to this year's most overly appreciated animated family flick, from the writing/directing team of Pete Docter (WALL-E) and Bob Peterson (Ratatouille). At the Enoch Pratt Wheeler Auditorium Dec. 19 at 2 p.m.
