So, the final bookings are out, and one of last year's most highly rated foreign films is on the menu. The amended list of Friday's openings includes:
"Toni Erdmann": Playing at AMC River Park Square, this lengthy (two hours, 42 minutes) German-language comedy centers on a father trying to connect with his workaholic daughter by posing as her boss' life coach. A German-made family comedy, imagine that.
I'll post the Magic Lantern openings when they become available.
Update (Wednesday a.m.): The Magic Lantern will continue with its current slate of films: "Moonlight," "The Founder," "Lion," "The Salesman," and the two Oscar-nominated shorts programs (animated, live-action).
