Looks like a solid weekend of moviegoing in Little Rock. Native Jeff Nichols' debuts his film "Shotgun Stories" at Market Street Cinema
. The film has been the recipient of several impressive awards, including most recently and Independent Spirit Award nomination. This is a must see for any Arkansas movie fan.
Anton Corbijn's critically acclaimed film "Control" also arrives at Market Street. Glenn Kenny of Premiere writes
, "Although it is, in point of fact, a biographical drama about the late Joy Division singer Ian Curtis, Control,
the debut feature by photographer–video director Anton Corbijn, is such a convincing, intimate, and beautiful movie that to refer to it as a biopic seems cheap."
"I Am Legend" starring Will Smith and "Alvin and the Chipmunks" open in wide release at the big theaters.
