Cutis (8/20/10)

Earlier this year, my wife, my dad, and I made plans to see the independent film Genova. Unfortunately, we were rebuffed when we tried to buy tickets to a (surprisingly) sold-out screening. We wondered…how could an under-the-radar movie about a grief-stricken widower moving his young daughters to Italy pack the house? A quick glance at the multiplex offerings gave us our answer. That weekend, moviegoers were limited to Iron Man 2, Robin Hood, and Shrek Forever After. Given those options, who wouldn’t be tempted by an art house theater and its mature, engaging alternatives?
