Friday’s openings range from horror to the heat

We're looking at another varied week of film as everything from horror to hot documentaries opens on Friday.

The openings are as follows:

The Other Woman: A trio of women conspire to make life hell for the married man who has cheated on them all. Hell hath no fury … and so on.

Dom Hemingway: Jude Law stars as a mobster, just released after 12 years in prison, who is looking to make up for lost time. "You're nothing but a pestilence," Dom says, "an uphill gardener with a weak chin." And that's one of his clean quotes.

Brick Mansions: In one of his last films, the late Paul Walker stars as an undercover cop trying to stop the destruction of Detroit. As if anyone could tell …

The Quiet Ones: Jared Harris stars as a university professor who leads a team of student on a parapsychology research venture. And they stumble upon … Regan MacNeil?

And at the Magic Lantern:

Kid Cannabis: Based on the real story of a posse of Coeur d'Alene pot dealers, this adaptation of an Inlander article is a study in life lessons learned the hard way. 

Joe: Nicolas Cage, in full bloom, stars as a guy who — as the Wall Street Journal's Joe Morgenstern says — is "a violence-prone man who can't restrain himself from doing good."

Anita: Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker Freida Lee Mock reminds us of the devastating experience that Anita Hill endured while testifying during the U.S. Senate hearings of future U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
