‘Toni Erdmann’ finally opening locally

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).
