When a young precocious “Khaki Scout” and teen girl go missing, the local police captain (Bruce Willis) and scouts go on a manhunt with a threatening storm heading toward this New England island. Also stars: Frances McDormand, Edward Norton and Bill Murray. Delightful, whimsical fun!
Sept. 16 & 17
YOUR SISTER’S SISTER, 2012, USA
Directed by: Lynn Shelton, 90 min. R
The mostly improvised and naturalism of the performances is the lure to this insightful story about a young man who intends to “get his head together” at a remote cabin, but much more is revealed when he finds his best friend’s sister there. Stars: Mark Duplass, Emily Blunt, & Rosemarie DeWitt
Sept. 23 & 24
SAFETY NOT GUARENTEED, USA, 2012
Directed By; Colin Trevorrow 89 min. R
Three Seattle based magazine employees head out on an assignment to interview a guy who placed an ad seeking a companion for time travel. The plot alone is so interesting, but this movie also has all the critics in a tizzy! Stars Aubrey Plaza and Mark Duplass.
