Moneyball (wide) The true story of Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane (Brad Pitt) and his support of unconventional practices that would change the game of baseball. From director Bennett Miller (Capote) and co-writers Aaron Sorkin (The Social Network) and Steven Zaillian (Schindler’s List).
The Mill & The Cross (Ritz at the Bourse) A painting by Pieter Bruegel serves as the inspiration for this fictional drama starring Charlotte Rampling as the Virgin Mary and Rutger Hauer as Bruegel himself. I’m reminded of that Greenaway film about Rembrandt’s Nightwatch…did that ever come out on DVD? It was pretty good.
