Saturday Night Movie Recommendations with Abe

Welcome back to a weekly feature here at Movies With Abe. I'm going to be providing a handy guide to a few choice movies currently playing in theatres as well as several films newly released on DVD. I invite you to add in your thoughts on any films I haven’t seen in the comments below. Understandably, some weeks will have considerably fewer releases to address than others.

Now Playing in Theatres

Mr. Turner (recommended): Mike Leigh’s latest film doesn’t much feel like one of his movies, but it’s still a relatively engaging if slow-moving story featuring a strong central performance from an actor not accustomed to lead roles, Timothy Spall. Now playing at Angelika, City Cinemas 123, and Lincoln Plaza. Read my review from yesterday.

Song of the Sea (highly recommended): Director Tomm Moore’s follow-up to “The Secret of Kells” is a typical Irish film that creatively uses animation to tell a folk tale in the most enthralling and visually appealing manner. Now playing at IFC Center. My review will be up tomorrow.

New to DVD

Nothing to report this week, but more to come soon, surely!
