In Theatres: Penelope

PENELOPE – the modern fairy tale about a young woman who must find true love to overcome a curse which had her born with the snout of a pig – opens today. The film has earned a 56% approval rating in a survey of 54 reviews (30 fresh, 14 rotten). That is just shy of the 60% minimum required to earn an overall “fresh” rating. Hollywood Reporter’s Kirk Honeycutt called the film a “charming, low-key fable with sly modern twists.” Buy movie tickets here.

Also worth noting: After its one-week run at the Nuart Theatre in West Los Angeles, George A. Romero’s DIARY OF THE DEAD has expanded to a few more engagements, at least in major markets like Los Angeles. Find Theatres and Showtimes here.
